School Districts

When a school district goes solar, everyone from taxpayers to students reaps the benefits. Even the smallest solar-powered schools save hundreds of thousands in energy bills, amounting to millions of dollars over the life of the commercial solar system.

Renovus works with teams of engineers, State energy performance contractors, and specialists at organizations such as BOCES to help entrepreneurial school districts go solar for as little as 10% of the sticker cost.

Going solar can save school districts thousands, lessening the stress of constricting budgets and enabling administrative staffs to invest in what matters, the well-being of their students.


Few institutions have a higher energy demand and more viable solar resources than universities and colleges. Renovus can help universities and colleges offset tens-of-thousands of dollars in energy costs every year. 

By combining viable rooftops, ground-mounted systems, and large utility-scale commercial solar projects; Renovus is helping Colleges minimize their energy impact, mitigate the financial risks associated with energy purchasing, and show their commitment to sustainability.

Becoming a solar-powered educational institution can benefit your budget immediately, with long-term savings that will reach into the millions of dollars over the guaranteed lifespan of the system.

CASE STUDY: Maine-endwell school district 

In September 2019, the Maine-Endwell Board of Education decided to partner with Renovus for the construction of a 15-acre solar field. The solar system was fully activated in March 2021 and is currently the largest owned by a school district in New York State, to reach 100% solar offset. The district predicts to save $6,000,000+ in future energy costs.

Check out drone footage of the solar field or watch an interview with Maine-Endwell Superintendent Jason Van Fossen. 


Candor Central Schools decided to go solar in mid-2017. By December 2017, Renovus had designed-built-tested and interconnected a 1MW solar array that is saving the school district more than $10,000 a month. 

Take a virtual tour of the system via 3D drone model, or watch an interview with the project's champion; Superintendent Jeff Kisowski.
