Mounds View High School – 40 kW

Project Name:   Mounds View High School
Project Size:   39.36 kW
Panels:   120
Location:   Arden Hills, MN
Commissioned:   2016

Mounds View High School recently flipped the switch on the first of six rooftop solar projects in the district which are anticipated to save the disctrict nearly $1M in electricity costs over the next 25 years. The solar panel systems will not only save energy dollars but also provide science learning opportunities for students and help to meet the district’s sustainability goals.

This array was installed AT NO COST to the district by IPS Solar’s Solar4Schools Program. Over the next 30 years, our systems will save hundreds-of-thousands in taxpayer dollars by lowering operational costs for school districts. Contact IPS to find out how solar can provide educational opportunities AND save money to your business or school district.

IPS Solar installed this 39.36kW solar electric system in Arden Hills, Minnesota to offset the electricity load of the school. The system produces about 50,000kWh of electricity on average per year. Producing 50,000kWh of electricity annually from coal emits about 100,000 pounds of carbon dioxide. Preventing this much carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere is equivalent to adding 5,000 trees to our forests. Over a 30-year span, IPS expects this system will offset 3,000,000 pounds or 1,500 tons of carbon dioxide.
