Scenic Hill Solar will be developing a new solar power plant to provide renewable energy for White County Central School District in Judsonia.
This single-ax tracking solar system, featuring 1,580 solar modules, will provide 680 kilowatts of capacity for the school district, and it is expected to meet 99 percent of the district’s operation needs. In total, the power plant is projected to have savings of $24,000 per year, saving the district roughly $1.1 million over the course of 28 years.
The $1.3 million power plant will be built, owned and operated by Scenic Hill Solar. White County Central School District will purchase electricity from Scenic Hill Solar as part of a long-term contract.
“White County Central is excited to partner with Scenic Hill Solar to drive down utility bills and allow the District to be a part of the solution by providing renewable electricity in our community. We also are excited about the educational benefits to our students as they observe the real-world value of STEM classes,” superintendent Dean Stanley said in a statement.
In the first year of operation alone, the solar power plant is expected to produce more than 1,155,834 kilowatt-hours of electricity. The power plant is expected to produce 32,074,393 kilowatt-hours of electricity over the course of 30 years.
