I am writing a series of posts on New Year's Resolutions. Here is the resolution from Simi Valley School Board Member Arleigh Kidd:


To mitigate the visual impact of the ground mount solar panels.

Thank you Arleigh Kidd. I know that effective implementation of this project is going to be critical. I am looking forward to the solar panels providing covered parking at Royal High School. I know that we can do a better job building community support. I am also looking forward to reading the energy production and use at each campus online. That will be informative about our energy policies.

Did the Board ever think to look at a cost/revenue analysis for owning that power generating capacity, rather than entering into a deal that seems a lot like letting a speculator buy a home by renting it from him for more than the cost of his mortgage payment?

Q: What is the District's net savings in energy costs under this deal compared to owning the system?

Q: What will be the developer's cost to build the system and what cost, over 20 years, does the District expect to pay for power, both from this system and from the conventional power grid.
