Live Solar Electric Generation
Bonneville Environmental Foundation provided educational materials and project management services for this project through its Solar 4R Schools program. BEF, a non-profit organization, was established in 1998 to restore watershed ecosystems and further the development and use of renewable energy resources. Through revenues generated from the sales of green power products, BEF funds and manages projects that restore damaged watersheds and support new renewable energy.
Clark Public Utilities started the GreenLights program to support the development of renewable energy resources in the Northwest. Customers can choose to purchase Green Lights renewable power in 100 kilowatt-hour blocks. Each block costs an extra $1.50 per month. Customer contributions are pooled to support the development of new, non-polluting energy resources in our region. Green Lights is operated in association with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
Clark Public Utilities is a customer-owned utility that provides electric and water service.
Through strong partnerships, local communities are having a position of influence on global issues.
Crestline Elementary School would like to thank Clark PUD for funding this project and Bonneville Environmental Foundation for providing educational materials and teacher training. By choosing non-polluting, renewable energy and protecting important natural resources, we are making a difference in the health of our community and environment, now and for generations to come. It is our hope that this project will inspire students to pursue careers and make decisions that make our world a better place.
