California School Boards Association and SunPower Partnering to Establish Solar Schools Program

West Sacramento,CA and San Jose,CA July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - In partnership with SunPower Corp. (NASDAQ: SPWRA, SPWRB), the California School Boards Association, a non-profit organization representing nearly 1,000 school districts and county offices of education throughout California, has launched its newest district services program, Solar Schools, to support school districts in developing efficient solar projects at their schools.

Solar Schools helps schools save money on energy, hedge against rising utility rates and effectively utilize federal and state incentives to garner the greatest return on investment. With the California Solar Initiative (CSI), the State of California's solar rebate program, California's public sector, including schools, is forecasted to save $2.5 billion from solar installations over the thirty year life of the systems. Of the total savings for the public sector, K-12 schools and higher education institutions are expected to save approximately $1.5 billion.
