Reducing Carbon Emissions and Accelerating STEM Concepts
Project Introduction
Project Name: Las Lomas High School Solar Project
Location: Walnut Creek, CA
Installed: 2016
Project Developer: Maktinta Energy
CSI Thermal Rebate: $133,000
 
Las Lomas High School is a public high school in Walnut Creek, California, United States. It was founded in 1951 by the Acalanes Union High School District, and opened its doors in the fall of 1952 to its first graduating class. Las Lomas was the second of five schools built within the Acalanes Union High School District. 

Reducing Carbon Emissions and Accelerating STEM Concepts
The solar array of 188 collectors provide heat to the school's pool year round.  The system deploys a Solar Brain controller operating the solar pump via a variable frequency drive to adjust the flow through the solar array to maximize heat production. System is self monitoring pushing notification to the installer and the maintenance team when it detects any divination from normal operating range. 

Having solar at school sites creates additional opportunities to focus on green education, environmental responsibility and clean energy, exposing the students to even more STEM-related curriculum and concepts.The system provides 24,000 Therms/Yr with total savings estimated at $36,000 annually eliminating  4,800 metric tons of carbon emissions
