Huntington Beach-based PsomasFMG has been awarded a new contract to develop a solar energy project for Baker Valley School District, located in San Bernardino County. Under the contract, PsomasFMG will design, finance, build and operate a photovoltaic solar panel system on district land.

“Through this partnership, our students will be learning the science and technology behind solar energy and hopefully an inspirational spark will be lit to explore a profession that is sure to be in high demand for the foreseeable future,” said Superintendent Dr. Keith Tomes.

The project will feature Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV) technology from Sol Focus to with expectations to generate 2.5-3 megawatts.

“With the Baker Valley Unified School District Board of Education's approval of this project, we are moving our school and students into the 21st century,” Dr. Tomes said.

The district will receive a percentage of the revenue generated from the completed solar energy farm and will not have to pay any money to PsomasFMG up front for the project.

“The money generated from this solar project can go directly back into classrooms, where it's needed most,” said PsomasFMG Executive Vice President Paul Mikos. “The school board and staff has shown excellent foresight and vision in championing this project.”
