Energize Delaware is pleased to have participated in The Jefferson School’s groundbreaking celebration for their new 141 kW solar array with battery backup. The system is part of larger expansion of The Jefferson School’s campus, and in keeping with the school’s commitment to sustainability.

“Solar with battery backup is key tool for organizations looking to improve their resiliency,” said Tony DePrima, Executive Director of Energize Delaware. “In the event of an emergency, this system will allow The Jefferson School to continue running and serving the community.”

Energize Delaware loaned $981,500 to project developer Edison Power to make this project possible. The Energize Delaware Revolving Loan Fund provides low-interest loans to Delaware businesses, non-profits, and local governments to make their energy efficiency and renewable energy projects a reality.

The 141 kW system and its energy monitoring system also fits well into The Jefferson School’s curriculum, and will give teachers, students and community first-hand experience on how solar electricity and batteries work.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
