Los Angeles school leaders are also buying their own solar panels for 52 campuses and seven other district facilities. They hope to save $112 million over the next 20 years with the 21-megawatt system.
Seventeen schools have received solar arrays so far. The district is financing its $146-million program through a combination of local bond money and cash from its 2008 settlement with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power of a lawsuit that alleged schools were overcharged for electricity for nearly two decades.
