Assumption College wanted to install solar panels at an off-site location to feed clean electricity back to the campus. Going solar would allow the school to avoid rising utility costs, but it didn’t have the resources to finance a large PV installation. After contacting ConEdison Solutions, Assumption College signed a 21-year power purchase agreement that covered all installation costs for a project that would have cost the school $8.35 million. The College went solar with no up-front costs. And it now saves $20,000 a year in electricity bills.
