Community Outreach Presentation for Solar Implementation at César Chávez Elementary

On June 20, 2019 the DJUSD Board of Education passed the Call to Climate Action Resolution supporting the District’s commitment to environmental education, sustainability and the continuing expansion of District-wide efforts to improve the energy efficiency of DJUSD schools.

On February 6, 2020, the Board of Education entered into a partnership with ARC Alternatives to help DJUSD develop a Solar Master Plan. One of the primary goals in the Solar Master Plan is to offset 80% of the District’s energy use through photovoltaic energy production (with solar panel arrays on most DJUSD campuses), a goal which exceeds CalGreen and Title 24 State requirements.

The installation of photovoltaic solar panels is a key step in our effort to expand renewable energy sources in DJUSD and at your school site

We would like to share a first look of your school site’s proposed solar panel installation location through this pre-recorded presentation. It is important to note that the proposed locations of solar arrays are approximate locations based on initial information from the Solar Master Plan. Final placement and size of the solar arrays will be guided by the feedback we receive from staff, community and our solar array financing entity.

Please share your feedback and comments with us at by the end of the day on Monday, June 7 at 5:00 p.m.
