Project Overview

The Buffalo Public School District wanted to go green while saving on total energy costs, but it also wanted to create additional educational opportunities for the students they serve.

Montante Solar allowed them to enter into a Power Purchase Agreement, meaning we own and maintain the systems and BPS purchases the power they generate. This created substantial value and savings upfront while still saving significantly on ongoing energy costs. They now run bi-annual student tours of the rooftop arrays, giving students the opportunity to learn the details of how solar power is generated, stored and distributed.

19 Schools Served

This project included rooftop arrays on 19 schools throughout the district.

Education Opportunities

Bi-annual tours of the rooftop arrays allow students to learn about solar power generation.

Record-Setting Solar

This was the largest rooftop solar project ever completed for a public school in NYS.

No Upfront Costs

A Power Purchase Agreement financing plan meant no capital expense or upfront costs.
