Lake Elsinore Unified School District Solar Canopies


Lake Elsinore, California

Stronghold Engineering was given an opportunity to provide power in 14 Lake Elsinore Unified School District locations consisting of 10 schools and 4 administration buildings. At these locations, Stronghold successfully installed 67 solar carports over parking areas covering 225,932 square feet for a total of 4MW of photovoltaic power. Additional battery storage systems were also installed at two of the seven sites.

Solar energy from Stronghold’s recent West Riverside Landfill Location is offsetting energy gathered by the solar parking canopies in the 14 locations. Each site receives between 6-10% of the power collected by the landfill’s solar system. To add on to the solar carports, Stronghold is looking into adding electric vehicle chargers underneath the canopies.

The Stronghold team completed the solar carport project on time and with zero safety incidents.
