Hosford Middle School - PGE

Live Solar Electric Generation

Hosford Middle School

In 2015, the Portland General Electric Renewable Development Fund, comprised of contributions from PGE Renewable Power customers, in partnership with Portland Public Schools and Energy Trust of Oregon, installed over 1.2 MW of solar on the rooftops of six schools including a 186.6 kW solar array installed on Hosford Middle School. By leveraging the BEF Solar 4R Schools program, teachers at Hosford Middle School and across the District will have access to renewable energy STEM professional development opportunities, along with science kits for the District's Multimedia Library, focused classroom activities and lesson plans to engage students in cutting edge renewable energy science and technology and information about careers in renewable energy.
