Niwot High School
On-Site Ballasted Rooftop Solar
St. Vrain Valley School District, Colorado
Due to difficult economics of rooftop solar PV deals in Xcel Energy service territory in Colorado, St. Vrain Valley School District (SVVSD) had trouble finding a developer and funder for their three-site rooftop solar PV portfolio. The project was at risk of not moving forward until St. Vrain brought Pivot Energy in to restructure the portfolio and optimize the deal.
Our team solved the economic issues by incorporating a rate tariff change for Niwot High School that moved the school from the Secondary General (SG) rate to a Solar PV Time-of-Use (SPVTOU) rate, changing the economics for SVVSD dramatically. The deal went from cash flow neutral for the school district to saving more than $65,000/yr at Niwot High School alone. The school now has significantly reduced operational costs while producing more than 660,000 kWhs/ year of clean, local solar electricity.
