PowerSecure International Inc. has designed and installed the power systems for Sandy Grove Middle School (SGMS) in Lumber Bridge, N.C., which the company says opened for the 2013-2014 school year as a net positive energy facility.

The LEED Platinum-certified school, which produces more energy than it consumes, will utilize a 589 kW DC solar photovoltaic system, designed and installed by PowerSecure Solar. Additionally, a 600 kW generator from PowerSecure, which includes the company’s custom controls and distributed generation (DG) solution, will enable demand response when the local utility, Lumbee River Electrical Cooperative, begins its anticipated demand response program in 2014.

“When we acquired our solar capabilities in 2012, we were looking to integrate solar with our industry-leading DG offering through microgrid, firm solar and other applications, and the project at Sandy Grove is a fantastic example of how these combined assets can deliver enhanced value to our customers,” says Sidney Hinton, CEO of PowerSecure.

According to PowerSecure, SGMS is anticipated to save nearly $16 million in energy cost over the next 40 years.
