Solar Updates

  • GUSD is committed to Energy Conservation and Sustainability. In 2012, the Board of Education authorized the installation of Solar Energy Generation systems at 12 school sites. Summer 2017, the solar program will expand to nine additional school sites in the Glendale Water and Power (GWP) service area. Energy cost savings from Solar Energy Generation systems support the GUSD general fund. Additionally, the solar structures provide shade to GUSD playgrounds, lunch areas, and parking lots. 

    The GUSD solar project is essential to supporting the District’s continuous expansion of campuses and technological advancements that provide exceptional educational opportunities for our students. Access to technology prepares our students for success in the 21st century global economy. However, it also increases energy consumption, which must be balanced with renewable energy. Solar energy is an eco-friendly form of power generation that will reduce the release of harmful pollutants that contribute to climate change. GUSD is proud to do our part to help California reduce its carbon footprint.
