Reed High School Solar Panel Parking Lot Ribbon Cutting

The Washoe County School District, in collaboration with Northern Nevada's Hamilton Solar Company, recently installed a collective 1.5 megawatt solar power system at Reed High School and North Valleys High School. The system is designed as  covered parking car ports for student parking at each high school.  The estimated cost for the Reed project was $7 million.

With no "Out-of-pocket" expenditures for the School District, the solar installation was entirely funded by rebates through NV Energ's Generation Program. The savings in electric costs from the two systems is estimated at $270,000 annually. The savings will go into the Washoe County School fund and should go back to the school for teachers, textbooks, supplies, etc.

The public is invited and welcomed to join the Washoc County School District, the City of Sparks  Mayor Geno Martini and a few other elected representatives to commemorate the project tomorrow, February 2, 2012, from 3:00 pm to 4:00 p.m. outside Reed High School.

WCSD Ribbon Cutting

Reed High School is located on the corner of Baring Blvd and Sparks Blvd, in Sparks NV just off I80 and downtown Sparks.
