About the School:

As a Renewable School, Sellwood Middle School in Portland, Oregon is building a dedicated community of renewable energy educators, generating clean energy through their 1-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) system, and leveraging 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. At the time of the project, energy monitoring and a touchscreen kiosk provided to the school connected the live performance data from their PV system to the Energy Exploration Center at
