The City of Puyallup, Washington recognizes the importance of its leadership role in environmental stewardship.The City leads by example to encourages energy conservation, proper recycling practices, pollution control and water/waste reduction and conservation practices. In partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy, the City of Puyallup pursued another good resource management example for their community with the Solar Power Project. The funding for the 10-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system installed onto the Puyallup Pioneer Park Pavilion was made possible by the Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program. This grant is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Recovery Act is an effort to jumpstart the economy, create or save jobs and address the nation’s energy and environmental challenges. Energy monitoring provided by the Solar 4R Schools program made the live performance data from their PV system available for educational purposes at the time of the project.
