The ConVal solar project, which has been in the works for almost four years, finally began construction in 2021.

ReVision Energy began installation on the 247-kilowatt array of 555 panels on the ConVal High School roof in late fall. Through a Power Purchase Agreement, the array will be installed at no cost to the school, and the school’s energy costs are expected to decrease by 7.2 cents per kilowatt-hour in the first year.

Construction, which included craning the array onto the roof, running wire pathways from the panels to the electric distribution panel and numerous inspections, began the week of Oct. 24.

ReVision is providing an electric-vehicle charger to be mounted on the side of the high school. The EV charger will draw energy from the school’s power grid, which will be partially fueled by the solar panels.

“The fact that ConVal is taking this step can inspire other schools and other families to go solar or buy an electric car,” Revision’s Dan Weeks, a ConVal grad himself, said.
