Future of Flight
- none -
Thanks to the support of Snohomish County PUD, the Future of Flight received a 3-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system installation onto the Everett, Washington Aviation Center in 2011. This installation brings renewable energy, once a futuristic dream, into the daily lives of staff and visitors. The PV modules are installed on a covered walkway that leads to the building's observation deck. The structure was fabricated in Washington state with module installation managed by a local electrical contractor.
Energy monitoring services and hardware provided to the Future of Flight Aviation Center by Solar 4R Schools™ connects real-time performance data from their 3-kilowatt system to the Energy Exploration Center at Solar4RSchools.org. Students and educators nationwide can chart, graph and analyze the system's performance data for educational purposes.
A Solar 4R Schools™ touchscreen kiosk located within the Future of Flight Aviation Center allows staff and visitors to interact with live system performance data while learning about the science and benefits of renewable energy.
