SOLAR-POWERED EDUCATION

Alan Clark of Brothers Electric Solar makes a measurement while preparing to install a solar power demonstration on the roof of Thomas Jefferson High School last week. The equipment will convert light directly into energy, which will go into Puget Sound Energy’s power grid. The school district will earn energy credit for the power produced. The demonstration will be used as part of a new curriculum in science and marketing classes at Thomas Jefferson this year. The solar panels were earned as one of two grants from PSE to the Federal Way School District totaling $45,000. The district was honored for continued efforts to reduce energy consumption. -
