Beaverton Resource Center
- none -
The City of Beaverton added a 1-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system to the roof of its Resource Center to encourage residents to make the switch to green power. The PV installation was funded through an ongoing partnership between Portland General Electric, the Energy Trust of Oregon, Inc. and BEF.
In addition to supplying clean electricity, the installation is also a valuable teaching tool thanks to the Solar 4R Schools program. 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.
