Temecula Valley USD Solar PV

NV5 was selected by Temecula Valley USD through a competitive process for solar consulting services. Working on an abbreviated schedule, NV5 performed a feasibility analysis, secured CSI incentives for the District, and developed an RFP to solicit solar design-build-finance proposals in late 2014. After detailed review of proposals and contract negotiations in early 2015, the District awarded SolarCity the PPA contract to construct elevated shade structure and ground mount solar installations at 20 District sites. The project includes 1.3 MW of demand management at 5 of the sites, which received SGIP incentives. NV5 continued to provide design review and technical assistance through construction, enhanced commissioning and first year performance review. The project is generating an estimated $36M in electricity cost savings over the life of the project, with carbon offsets in excess of 70,000 tons.
