About the Project:

Completed in Spring of 2018, this 3.9 kW roof top solar photovoltaic system generates an estimated 5,600 kWh of clean, renewable energy each year. Funded by an Idaho Power grant, the system’s high efficiency panels provide the equivalent to the usage of about nine barrels of oil per year. Educational resources, including live data monitoring, and teacher training from BEF’s CE Bright Futures program provide Trail Wind Elementary with the tools needed to incorporate renewable energy programming into their educational curriculum.
