In a historic first of its kind for the DMV region, Ideal Academy Public Charter Academy and DC-startup BDG Renewable Energy Development, LLC., sign memorandum of understanding to transform the Lamond Riggs community toward a more sustainable and equitable energy future for area stakeholders; while saving Ideal Academy thousands of dollars in energy costs and direct more money toward achieving the school’s mission.

BDG will design, finance, and build a behind-the-meter solution for Ideal Academy that will strengthen the charter school and community energy security, improve reliability and resiliency of the Lamond Riggs area grid; maintain power and improve vital community services for area residents when service territory experiences widespread outages; increase alternative and renewable energy jobs and business creation that increases and diversifies community participation in the new energy economy; and saves area consumers money through community energy cooperatives.

Ideal Academy spokesperson stated: “This project provides the enabling environment to demonstrate how innovative school-centered partnerships in collaboration with utilities, governments, and education administrations at all levels will focus on training the new energy workforce for sustainable higher paying jobs; creating new science, technology, energy, and advanced manufacturing (STEAM) jobs; as well as spurring new sustainable energy entrepreneurs directly from the local community.
