Warren HSD 121 Saving Big with Solar
Solar PV Size
Warren Township High School District 121 serves approximately 4,200 students across two campuses. After several years of investigation into the environmental, educational, and financial benefits of solar, the school district selected Performance Services to install a 2.4MW ground-mounted solar array. The 2.4MW solar array will rest on two parcels on either side of the entrance road at the Almond Campus. The project officially broke ground in October 2019 with substantial site work and reforestation work to meet Lake County requirements. The solar arrays were energized in May 2020.
As a result of the project, the District will receive approximately $2.5 million in rebates and incentives within the first five years of operation. In addition, it is anticipated that the solar project will generate enough energy to account for nearly all the energy usage at the Almond Campus, saving the district approximately $300,000 in annual operating costs.
