About the School:

As a Renewable School, Helen Baller Elementary in Camas, Washington is building a dedicated community of renewable energy educators, generating clean energy through their 1-kilowatt photovoltaic system and used the system's performance data as an educational tool to bring energy topics to life in their classrooms. 

In 2009, educators within the school received a customized renewable energy teacher training, hands-on science kit materials to augment the school's existing curricula, and complete access to the resources available on the website.

Energy monitoring provided to the school has connected the live performance data from their PV system to the Energy Exploration Center at Students and educators nationwide can chart, graph and analyze the system's performance data for educational purposes.
