Centre is Largest Solar Installation in Washington State

Schott Applied Power Corp says it has completed the largest solar photovoltaic system in Washington State.

TUMWATER, Washington, US, 2002-01-10 [SolarAccess.com] The 23 kW system was installed at Puget Sound Environmental Learning Center on Bainbridge Island. The roof-mounted PV system generates power to run the building and lets PSELC meet its goal of sustainability. Scheduled to open next fall, PSELC is a 255 acre complex of forests, wetlands and buildings that promote hands-on learning and environmental stewardship. Schott provided a data acquisition and monitoring package which, with the hardware, allows the centre to graphically monitor production from the solar panels and incorporates the data into learning programs. “The photovoltaic panels will help children learn about resource conservation and alternative energy,” says coordinator Clancy Wolf. “We will be developing a curriculum to help students understand where the energy they use comes from, and how they can make informed choices on how much energy they use.” http://www.pselc.org
