Elsie Whitlow Public Charter School Project

Led by the CivicPACE initiative at The Solar Foundation (now IREC), the PACE-financed solar and efficiency retrofit project will provide a Washington D.C. school with timely and valuable upgrades to a facility that supports 350 pre-school and elementary school students.

The energy and water saving mechanical upgrades, in conjunction with a rooftop solar PV system, will provide the school nearly $10,000 in benefits per year, at no upfront cost. This project represents an innovative opportunity for many schools to immediately see cash flow positive results that can be used to improve the lives and education of their students.
