k12 Energy installs a solar system for PBS on top of a California mountain

This was a $1.4 million project with a Power Purchase Agreement, (PPA) built at no cost to PBS. PBS just purchases the green solar electricity at a much lower rate than from the utility.

PBS and their member stations are America's largest classroom, the nation's largest stage for the arts and a trusted window to the world. In addition, PBS's educational media helps prepare children for success in school and opens up the world to them in an age-appropriate way.


Recently, k12 Energy, specializing in energy saving, solar systems for non-profits installed a 690 kW solar system on the top of a mountain in northern California to enable, green solar power to run PBS towers and repeaters.
A green, no cost, leave no trace solar installation.

K12 used a large pile driver to push steel posts into the ground so no concrete was needed. Unlike other solar installations that inject tons of concrete into the ground that will be there for hundreds of years!
