San Diego Solar Power: Chabad Hebrew Academy
Sullivan Solar Power installed a 131,652-watt solar power system at the Chabad Hebrew Academy’s 27-acre campus in Scripps Ranch. The system consists of 446 Sunpower panels, which are high-efficiency panels capable of turning the sun’s rays into renewable electricity.
The cost of the system was paid for in part by a $96,090 rebate the school applied for and received through the California Solar Initiative. The school’s system was grandfathered into the San Diego Gas & Electric net metering program, which allows the school to sell excess electricity the system generates but isn’t used on the campus to the utility and place it on the public energy grid.
