Because of a solar power system, a school in rural California has been able to reopen their music program that they cut a few years back due to money. The solar power system was a $5 million project but the loan payments were actually cheaper than the cost of the school’s utility bills. In the next 25 years, the school will actually end up saving $9 million. The system will be completely paid off in 15 years and was installed by SolarCity. The school now has enough money for keyboard classes, choir, drama, band, and much more for the children who attend this school.
