Local Schools Get Two Million Dollars For Solar Projects

Jim Parks with the Sacramento Municipal Utility District says some of the projects are designed to save energy or ease strain on the power grid during the summer.

PARKS: "SMUD purchases power on the open market and so to the extent we can get energy efficiency cheaper than we can purchase power on the market, it's a good deal for us."

SMUD helped Elk Grove Unified and Sacramento City Unified School districts apply for funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. 

SMUD received $36 million.  When a district or agency provides receipts from a project, SMUD then matches that spending with ARRA funds.
