Memorandum of Understanding
In December 2007, the River Falls School District (RFSD) and River Falls Municipal Utilities (RFMU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to identify the framework of cooperation in the deployment of a 3.7 kW photovoltaic dual-axis tracker system estimated to produce 5,236 kWh per year. The total project cost, including labor, material, and an educational kiosk display system inside the school is estimated at $45,000.
An estimated $11,000 will be funded in the form of a grant utilized by RFMU’s POWERful Choices! and Commitment to Community (formerly known as Public Benefits) funding with the remaining funding to be generously provided by Wisconsin Public Power Inc. (WPPI) through a Renewable Project Grant and Power Supply Resource Funding.
