A $32 Million School Solar Project

December 19, 2009 at 10:42 pm 1 comment

Jason Bade, a graduate of Aragon High School in San Mateo, CA, has led a successful lobbying effort that brought solar power to schools in his district.

His quest to convince the district to invest in solar power began in October 2007, when he first met with district members. After much time and effort, the district’s School Board approved a massive solar installation, funded by bond money, for all six high schools in the San Mateo Union High School District this past November. The $32 million project has been started and will lower the district’s annual electric bill by $1 million. This means that the general fund will now have $1 million more every year which is equivalent to almost 10 full time positions.

Jason is currently a freshman at Stanford University, and also a California Climate Champion.
