Longview School District students can now learn about clean energy and the natural world at the 82-acre Wake Robin Learning Center, courtesy of a 1.1-kilowatt solar-electric system funded by Cowlitz County PUD. The solar project is also a learning tool that introduces students to renewable energy technology and provides them with an opportunity to explore global energy issues in an interactive, hands-on way. A web-based data monitoring system allows students to monitor real-time system performance and to download historical data for presentation and analysis. An interactive touch-screen kiosk inside the school displays live system data and information about conservation and other renewable energy sources.
