Mountlake Terrace Transit Center
- none -
The Mountlake Terrace Transit Center was designed to incorporate a number of environmentally friendly features, including a 32-panel photovoltaic (PV) system installation, which generates electricity for the regional power grid. The panels generate enough electricity annually to power an average area home for nearly six months.
Thanks to generous support from Snohomish County PUD, 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. A touchscreen kiosk placed within the Transit Center allowed community members to interact with the system's live performance data while learning about the project and the broader science and benefits of solar power.
