Altus Teams Up with Harwinton Schools to Bring Solar to Local CT School District

January 2014

Altus Power Management is pleased to announce the completion of a solar system for Harwinton Public Schools.  The 402 kW project is located on the rooftop of Lewis S. Mills Middle School in Burlington, CT, and was installed by American Solar and Alternative Power.

Harwinton Schools will directly benefit from this project by paying a discounted price for power compared to that of the utility, and will enjoy the environmental benefits of generating clean energy. The system is expected to generate just under 500,000 kWh of energy annually, significantly reducing the school’s demand for electricity.  The solar power generated will offset about 260 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, equivalent to the annual CO2 emissions from 29,429 gallons of gasoline. The completion of this project adds to Altus Power’s rapidly expanding solar portfolio.
