Natomas Unified School District (NUSD)
After working on an LED solution for more than a year, SPURR helped NUSD implement a long-lasting and energy-efficient lighting solution for exteriors and gymnasiums.
All public school districts have the urgent need to move to LED lighting to reduce costs and lower their environmental impact. That’s why SPURR has been working on an LED solution for more than a year. It was critical to fully understand the LED lighting solution options for the unique needs of schools and then set up a cost-effective procurement process.
The Natomas Unified School District (NUSD) was the first SPURR client for this innovative LED Lighting Equipment Program. This project will cover all exterior lighting and gymnasiums for Natomas High School, Gateway Middle School, Discovery High School and Jefferson Elementary. The contract is valued at approximately $225,000.
The program will greatly reduce the energy costs and environmental impact at NUSD schools. LED lights last 5-7 years longer than traditional bulbs and use significantly less energy while generating less heat. NUSD schools will reduce energy usage by roughly 90 KW per year following the switch. The new lights are scheduled to be fully installed by May 2016.
What Our Clients Say
California Public School District
Solar is one of the most promising energy options for California public school districts, county offices of education, and community college districts. But given the number of solar energy companies that have rushed into this market, public school districts need the expertise to build performance guarantees, escalation processes and end-of-life processes into their RFPs to procure the best deal.
SPURR developed the innovative Renewable Energy Aggregated Procurement (REAP) Program to leverage the collective purchasing power of its large membership to secure competitive, transparent, pre-negotiated pricing and terms for any California public school district, county office of education, or community college district that wants to implement a solar project. REAP Program pricing and terms can be adopted and implemented by participants to meet their individual and unique solar project needs.
A school district will get the best solar project pricing available in the marketplace to date. SPURR streamlines the solar competitive bidding process and minimizes the administrative strain associated with solar project procurement. We provide competitively procured project costs as well as standardized terms and conditions of service. Pricing is firm for solar installations on the conditions described so project returns on investment can be more accurately computed.
