Once installed, the solar panels are expected to generate as much as 35 percent of the school's electrical needs. Most of those panels will be installed by July.
Over the next six months, six other schools within the LAUSD will have solar panels installed including: Ann Street Elementary School, Banning High School, Edward R. Roybal Learning Center, El Dorado Elementary School, Francis Polytechnic Senior High School and Grover Cleveland High School. Solar panels will also be installed at the LAUSD Local District 5 offices.
The solar panel installation is part of the LAUSD's effort to reduce energy and water consumption by 10% by 2012.
