Greenskies Renewable Energy announced it has completed the installation of solar arrays at four schools in Trumbull, Connecticut.

The projects will significantly lower the annual electric costs at Madison Middle School, Hillcrest Middle School, Trumbull High School, and Frenchtown Elementary School, the company said.

Mark Deming, director of Facilities for Trumbull, said, “Incorporating solar into our overall plan was just the right thing to do for environmental and financial reasons.  Bundling these projects allowed us to accomplish more in a shorter period of time.”

In addition to the solar arrays, which were funded by Greenskies with no upfront cost, Trumbull invested approximately $6 million in LED retrofits, seven new building management systems, nine boiler-room renovations, and four building retrofits.

The solar projects and other projects undertaken by Trumbull will drive costs down by $800,000annually, according to the company.
