Case Studies

Large Ground Mount System

With local energy prices increasing significantly each year, the Albuquerque Academy wanted to incorporate solar energy into its use base while at the same time locking in a set price of electricity.


Because the Academy is a not-for-profit school, it was unable to utilize the Investment Tax Credit as well as the Federal and State depreciation benefits. To accommodate all of the Academy’s objectives, RC Energy entered into a 20-year PPA whereby the Academy could budget its energy usage from solar. The system was sized to provide approximately 60% of the Academy’s annual usage at a substantial savings over current electricity prices.
