A wind and solar energy production site will be going up at Kalapuya High School thanks to a $50,000 EWEB Greenpower grant.
EWEB Greenpower customers voted Kalapuya’s proposal as the top project among the 6 finalists from throughout the county.
In collaboration with the University of Oregon Solar Radiation Monitoring Laboratory, Kalapuya will design, build and install the dual solar and wind power generating station.
The solar panels will be adjustable and the wind turbine will be on a retractable tower to allow for student experiments.
The project will also be combined with the KHS greenhouse, wetlands, gardens and beehives to become an outdoor science site for Bethel elementary school students.
