Eugene-based Energy Wise will install 20 solar power systems on the roof of Albany schools under the Oregon Solar Incentive Program.

The Albany School Board voted 3-1 on Monday to approve the proposal from Energy Wise, which will install, own and maintain the systems at no charge for 15 years. After that, Energy Wise will either turn over ownership of the systems or remove them at no cost.
The solar array will be connected to the schools’ meters. Under the state’s 15-year Solar Incentive Program, Pacific Power will pay the company 37 cents per kilowatt hour generated. The schools now pay about 6 cents.
Under the deal, the schools will get $1,000 per system per year either in savings because they generate their own power or from Energy Wise if they don't.
