Sonoma Clean Power recently presented a check for $16,477 to West Sonoma County Union High School District (WSCUHSD). Keller McDonald, the Superintendent of the school district, was on hand May 14 to receive the check from Sonoma Clean Power CEO Geof Syphers and Sonoma Clean Power board member and Sebastopol mayor, Patrick Slayter. The check represents the school district’s NetGreen payment from Sonoma Clean Power.
The District earned this check from Sonoma Clean Power because WSCUHSD’s solar system generated more electricity than the school used. The payment symbolizes the District’s commitment to being energy smart.
WSCUHSD was one of several schools to receive a check from Sonoma Clean Power’s energy payments, totaling over $200,000.
The Center for Climate Protection hopes that other public agencies and Sonoma Clean Power customers will follow WSCUHSD’s smart, inspiring example.
