Calistoga Junior/Senior High School will soon have clean electricity from the sun. Solar Works, local solar business in charge of design and installation, has announced the construction of a 51-kilowatt system, scheduled to start producing power in November 2013, said a news release.

The solar electric system will offset 97 percent of the school’s electricity bills, producing an estimated 70,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually. The system’s 200 modules will be mounted on the roof of the school’s new gym.

The solar project is part of a redevelopment plan for Calistoga schools, made possible by the 2010 passage of Measure A. In addition to solar electricity installations, other projects include classroom upgrades, a new cafeteria, and replacement of aging roofs, electrical and plumbing systems.

In 2012, the Sebastopol-based business designed and installed a 75-kilowatt solar system at Calistoga Elementary School.

A rocky pocket called Snake Pit in a Napa hillside bears marks of the area’s volcanic past and today’s quarrying that provides materials for roads and other construction projects.
