Agassi Prep Solar Project
Agassi Prep also exemplifies environmentally-friendly operations. The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education is installing a fully permitted and approved 380 kW photo-voltaic energy system to provide electric power to the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy. It is expected that the solar system and energy efficiency improvements will help educate students about solar energy, produce clean renewable electricity, and reduce power bills for the school, allowing those savings to be used for educational purposes. The system will be connected to the grid and will fully utilize net-metering. The 1st phase of a multi-phase project was completed in August 2010 and consists of a 240 kW photo-voltaic renewable energy system on the roof of the elementary school and gymnasium, which is the largest rooftop solar project in the state of Nevada. The 2nd phase of the project will consist of installing an additional 140 kW photo-voltaic renewable energy system on specially designed solar carports, with plug-in capability, as well as on the rooftops of the middle school, high school and multipurpose room. In addition, various energy efficiency improvements will also be implemented.
