Agenda Item #38


Title
Solar Arrays for Golfview Elementary, Stone Middle and West Shore Jr/Sr High

Discussion

Florida Power and Light (FPL) has selected Golfview Elementary School, Stone Middle School and West Shore Jr/Sr High School to receive ten-kW solar arrays at no cost to Brevard Public Schools (BPS).  The scope of this project includes design, construction and five years of maintenance for these installations.

At the end of the five year period, FPL will "sell" the installations to BPS at no cost.  See Attachment 3 (page 22) of the attached contracts and note that this "Form of Bill of Sale" will be signed at the end of the five year period.  It is for reference only and is not to be signed at this time.  The contracts for these three installations are the same as those for the previous seven solar array installations previously installed by FPL in BPS schools.

This project will provide excellent educational opportunities for students of BPS, as well as an example of alternative energy technology to the public.

The School Board Attorney has reviewed the contracts and approved them for submittal to the School Board
