Photovoltaic system at West Salem High School

A solar event
Salem Electric, along with partners West Coast Bank, The Bonneville Environmental Foundation, IBEW Salem and Northside Electric, funded and installed a 2.4 kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system at West Salem High School.

The interactive PV system includes a data acquisition package that allows students, teachers and community members to access real-time system performance over the internet. This live working resource is coupled with curriculum designed to promote student and community understanding of renewable energy.

A benefit to Salem Electric is that our Engineering and Operation Departments can study the project and become more familiar with customer-owned generation applications that connect to our distribution system.
