The article describes a solar energy agreement between Honeywell Building Solutions and the Pleasanton, California Unified School District. Honeywell will function as an electric utility for the district and take responsibility for the installation, ownership, and maintenance of solar cell panels on seven school buildings. Honeywell will then sell to the district the electric power produced by those panels at a price below a current utility rate. The agreement includes curriculum development on the district's solar energy program.
