The Camino Union School District (CUSD) will have the ability to keep their food storage safe during power outages thanks to a $12,000 grant from the Latrobe Fund that CUSD received in 2019. The generator was installed in October by Carnahan Electric and receives fuel from propane provided by Ferrell Gas.
“This generator gives CUSD the ability to keep our freezer and refrigerator running when the school loses power,” CUSD Superintendent/Principal Matt Smith explained. “Thank you to the Latrobe Fund, Carnahan Electric and Ferrell Gas for making it possible.”
The PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events caused CUSD to close its doors a total of seven days during the 2019-20 school year. These events threatened the school’s large food supply which is delivered once per month.
