About the Project:

Beaverton School District’s photovoltaic (PV) system was installed in summer of 2017. The installed 128-kilowatt PV installation demonstrates the practicality of photovoltaics while providing additional learning opportunities for vistors of the District. In addition to building a dedicated community of renewable energy educators, Solar 4R Schools has transformed the school's existing PV system into a hands-on classroom tool. Energy monitoring at the school allows students and educators to chart, graph and analyze the system's performance data for educational purposes. Educators within received a customized renewable energy teacher training, hands-on science kit materials to augment the District's existing curricula, and complete access to the resources available on the CEBrightFutures.org website.
