About the School:

Sparked by a solar-power enthusiast and former schoolteacher, the 2.4-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system installed on Meridian Park Elementary School was the City of Shoreline, Washington's first public solar project. The system, installed on the school's music building, was made possible by the Seattle City Light Green Power program. Thanks to the continued support of Seattle City Light, Meridian Park became the recipient of a Solar 4R SchoolsTM Renewable School project in 2008.

Renewable School projects are designed to build a dedicated community of renewable energy educators within a single school or district, led by a designated "Teacher Champion." In 2008, 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.
