Pathfinder Elementary was the first site designated by the Seattle School District for installation of solar equipment and the site of a major Seattle Green Power kickoff event in January 2002. Construction began in June 2002 and the project actually began producing power in January 2003.
As part of a city-wide update and repair, Solar 4R Schools was asked by Seattle City Light to repair the photovoltaic system at Pathfinder Elementary.
In addition to repairing the PV system, Solar 4R Schools installed a data monitoring system and weather station and provided teachers with an activity guide and onsite training so students could start using the system for learning.
