Meadows Valley Schools became interested in solar energy after they received the application materials from Idaho Power. Teachers were encouraged by the attention renewable energy has been receiving locally and nationally and wanted to bring that knowledge about it to their community by integrating renewable energy education into their lesson plans. Meadows Valley hopes to impact their students and community by inviting students and community organizations to give presentations on going green. The school's goal is to help citizens better understand the country's future in renewable energy.

Project Update, March 7 2011:
The original Solectria PVI1800 inverter experienced technical difficulties and has been replaced. Thank you Scott Gates with Idaho Power for helping the school keep their PV system operating! You can see how much energy the new inverter has produced by looking at the Lifetime box.
