3 3 PG&E Source of Energy – Expensive and Volatile Source: PG&E, s/electric/energymix/index.shtml PG&E is largely dependent upon natural gas, an expensive and volatile source of power. California nuclear plants are being decommissioned, not replaced Source: US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Map of the United States Showing Locations of Sites Undergoing Decommissioning:

5 Comparing the Solar Choice and the Non-Solar Choice 5 Neither choice is cost or risk free (i.e., electricity is not free) – Not doing solar means continuing to purchase ~ 21 million kWh ($3.68 million) per year of electricity at unknown but likely increasing rates over the life of the system. – Doing solar would reduce PG&E usage by ~17 million kWh per year and would enable the District to capture ~$16 million in CSI incentive payments during the first 5 years.

6 6 SunPower will offset 91% of the Districts PG&E bills by generating 81% of the Districts energy usage RENEWABLE ENERGY TARGET = 81% Electric Energy Usage – All 51 Schools*21,305,397 kWh SunPower Solar Generation17,171,710 kWh Percentage of Energy from Solar81% UTILITY COST OFFSET = 91% Annual PG&E Energy Bill – All 51 Schools * (Before Solar)$ 3,681,410 Annual PG&E Energy Bill – All 51 Schools * (After Solar)$334,991 Estimated Bill Savings from Solar Generation$3,346,418 Percentage of PG&E Energy Bill Reduced91% *Annual Current Energy Bill is based on PG&E rate tariff as of June 1 st, 2010 (Historical Energy Bill $3,365,134) Energy Bill Savings
