Solar Energy Solutions has been actively participating with the district in other past projects, such Charlotte High School and Charlotte High Sports Complex, incorporating state of the art renewable energy systems to their facilities, facilitating a substantial reduction on the cost of energy consumption.

The Lemon Bay H.S. project consist of a large scale Solar Thermal System, featuring commercial grade roof mounted solar collectors, custom built oversized storage tanks, with heat exchanger, this concept has many advantages over conventional Close Loop system, since the school has minimum activity on weekends, holidays, spring break, and summer recess.
