About the School:

As the recipient of a Renewable School project, Glenwood School in rural Washington state is building a dedicated community of renewable energy educators, generating clean energy through their on-site photovoltaic (PV) system and leveraging the system's performance data as an educational tool to bring energy topics to life in their classrooms.

Educators within the school received a customized renewable energy teacher training, hands-on science kit materials to augment the school's existing curricula, and complete access to the resources available on the Solar4RSchools.org website. Energy monitoring provided to the school connects live performance data from their PV 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.
