APS to install solar panels at GESD District Office

Posted by Jim Cummings on 5/24/2019

Arizona Public Service (APS) will install solar panels in the parking lot of Glendale Elementary School District’s Administrative Offices beginning in June. 

The panels, which also serve to provide covered parking, are being installed at no cost to GESD, and will provide for a $7,500 yearly reduction to the District’s electric bill, APS Customer Project Associate Austin Hatfield said. The credit is not tied to the amount of energy produced by the solar panels. APS  chose the District Office parking lot for the project because it is the only site that meets the ability to provide a minimum of 250 kilowatts of energy. APS provides service to four District sites.
