REC Solar and Kenyon Energy have inaugurated three solar energy systems at Beaverton School District in Oregon.

This solar project marks the third occasion REC Solar and Kenyon Energy have collaborated with a public education institution in the Pacific Northwest, a traditionally challenging market for solar, the companies note.

Located at three district sites - Elmonica Elementary School, Springville K-8 School and the Health and Science School - the solar installations have a rated capacity of 299.3 kW. They are expected to save the school district nearly $20,000 in annual energy costs.

Kenyon Energy served as project owner, developer and financier, while REC Solar acted as engineering, procurement and construction contractor, designing and building the project.

Under the system ownership arrangement, Beaverton schools receive solar energy, while Kenyon Energy benefits from Oregon and federal incentives and tax credits. After a 15-year period, the school district has the opportunity to buy the system outright.
