RJUHSD drew prices for solar panel installation at Granite Bay, Antelope and Woodcreek High Schools. According to RJUHSD Director of Business Services Joe Landon, the district put out a “request for proposal” to solicit bids for the installation, materials and contractors needed and looks to finance these projects outside of Measure D funds.

Of the three drawn-out plans for installation, GBHS is the most likely site to receive the panels.

“Granite Bay is the one that we are expecting is going to make the most sense because their utility costs are the highest,” Landon said. “We see there’s significant savings there.”

Last summer, the district ran out of time to begin the installations at GBHS but will shoot for this coming summer, according to Landon. Due to be located within the boundaries of a more expensive utilities district, GBHS’ electric utility costs amount to around $400,000 annually – twice as much as the cost at AHS and WHS. The district looks to stem these costs while being environmentally friendly.

“The biggest motivation is to save money, and Granite Bay is the one that would save us the most money in the long run” Landon said. “Being eco-friendly is a motivation as well.”

Landon said the reason RHS is not included as a potential school for now is the cost of installing panels in separated parking lots.

“Roseville High School doesn’t really have one big parking lot,” Landon said. “It’s not necessarily the inconvenience, it’s just the costs would be higher.”
