Cascades Academy is an engaged, vibrant community that weaves challenging academics with experiential learning to inspire socially-responsible individuals ready for a diverse and changing world. This 24.6 kW solar photovolatic system was installed in 2016 thanks to Cascades Academy’s commitment to sustainability.
Electricity generated will reduce the school’s energy costs and improve the environment. The PV system was accompanied by STEM professional development opportunities for teachers through BEF’s Solar 4R Schools program, along with science education kits, classroom activities and renewable energy lesson plans. It’s all thanks to funding from Cascades Academy, Oregon Department of Energy, and Bonneville Power Administration.
