Performance Contracting

Henderson County Schools

Henderson County School DistrictHenderson, Kentucky

This project was a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract that included solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays for 8 facilities in Henderson, Kentucky. The arrays produced 157,534 kWh in the first year of installation. 

The facilities that had PV arrays installed include:

  • Henderson County High School
  • Thelma B. Early Learning Center
  • South Heights Elementary School
  • South Middle School
  • North Middle School
  • Bend Gate Elementary School
  • Central Academy
  • New Jefferson Elementary School 

Each building received a turnkey PV system consisting of PV solar modules, a racking system, optimizers, and DC to AC inverters.

  • The PV modules are high-efficiency commercial tier 1 solar modules that have a low degradation rate.
  • The DC to AC inverters include an internet-based monitoring system that will be monitored for the length of the contract. 
  • The racking system is a ballasted, non-roof-penetrating system installed with a slip sheet to prevent direct contact between the racking system and existing roof membrane.
  • PV modules will be placed at the best orientation to maximize yearly production.

I wanted to reach out and let you and your crew know how much I appreciated every aspect of the solar panel project. The CMTA crew was very professional, patient, and precise. I could not have asked for a more seamless project from the beginning to the end. I definitely recommend CMTA.
