Rescue USD Approves Solar Project

Rescue USD Approves Solar Project

Dear Rescue USD Community
As we start the new year I wanted to share some exciting Rescue USD news.  I am pleased to announce that the Solar Lease Project we have been working on for the past twelve months was approved by the Rescue USD school board recently. We are set to begin preliminary work on installing free-standing solar structures in all seven school site parking lots (similar to what you see at our local high schools). This endeavor was overwhelmingly supported by the community in our Spring 2023 survey, comes at no cost to the general fund, and promises significant and guaranteed savings over the next 25 years.  These savings will be strategically utilized for deferred maintenance and important facility improvements, which ultimately benefits our staff, students and community.
In the coming months we will be adding a section to our website (here) that provides project updates, the schematics for each site and a draft timelines for this project.  
Take care and here is to a great 2024.
