In the summer of 2010, the Cape & Vineyard Electric Cooperative hired ConEdison Solutions to help Barnstable County municipal customers reduce their electricity bills. Using a 15-year power purchase agreement, the Coop commissioned a 101 kW solar installation at Eddy Elementary School. For the past 5 years, the school has saved an average of $12,000 annually on its utility bills. The environmental savings from these 374 Suntech panels will allow Eddy Elementary to reduce its CO2 emissions by more than 2.5 million pounds.
