Community Solar Projects

Solicitations are currently happening for community solar projects on getting paid to lease area for solar panels.  I was given a ballpark number of $6,000 per 12,000 sq. ft. of roof or flat space.   We have hundreds of thousands of square feet available. We could get lease payments every year for 8 years.  http://www.dsireusa.org/incentives/incentive.cfm?Incentive_Code=WA27F&re... Private investment would pay for the solar arrays and maintenance at no cost to the college because the incentives are so great right now.  The big hitch is whether or not we could be granted a special provision from the Department of Revenue for the project because it is on state land.  72,000 square feet of solar array could provide a percentage of our annual power from renewables and be incorporated into student learning for many of our educational programs such as Green Real Estate, Business, Industrial Power and Energy, etc...

Potential Annual Revenue: ~$50,000
