Solar Power Solutions
With the dramatic decline in manufacturing, installation and equipment costs, solar photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal are more cost-effective than ever before. Solar systems have a 25-year power production warranty and an average lifespan of 50 years or more, so an investment in solar saves millions of dollars in utility costs in the long run.

Benefits of Solar Energy
Solar energy offers a variety of benefits for K-12 school stakeholders. Schools can achieve net zero or a significant reduction in utility bill costs, and solar power can result in positive cash flow in the first year of operation depending on the method of financing the project.
Teachers and students will also benefit from a solar installation with STEM-based curriculum. Performance Services is a Partner for the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project to provide K-12 curriculum, teacher training, web-based energy data for export and use in the classroom and Energy Challenge events.
There are three groups of stakeholders that benefit from utilizing solar energy on campus. The first is the Administration and Board of Trustees, as solar is a long-term investment in the campus' energy usage, and solar programs can reflect the organization's mission and identity.
The facilities department are able to manage the delivery of cost-effective, reliable and environmentally responsible energy sources around the clock. Solar power systems put stakeholders back in control of their buildings.
Finally, students are able to get involved with their campus through environmental awareness and sustainability programs. The renewable energy systems powering the campus will be a point of engagement for the student body.
Solar power enables government leaders to establish a long-term plan for powering the city-owned buildings with reliable, cost-effective power. Renewables also demonstrate concern for the environment and community by integrating "green" programs into the city.
In Texas, Performance Services is not licensed to perform installation and interconnection services but can provide customers with a list of Texas licensed ELC contractors who can.
