Yakima Community College – Glen Anthon Arts & Science

YVCC

This 30-kilowatt solar array consisting of 112 solar panels was is installed on the roof of the Yakima Valley Community College’s Glenn Anthon Arts & Science building, which is used for mathematics and science instruction. Teachers plan to incorporate this renewable energy project into the school’s renewable energy curriculum. This project includes an educational monitoring kiosk in the building’s lobby that displays the system’s generation information.

In addition to installing the solar array, the College’s long-range goal is to reduce its carbon footprint by also installing cost-effective energy-saving products such as LED lighting, occupancy sensors, auto-flush valves, low-flow water fixtures and add additional battery-operated vehicles to its fleet.
