On November 21, 2013 at 3:00pm Yakima Valley Community College will host a celebration to showcase the completion of a solar panel array installed on the roof of Glenn Anthon Hall.

YVCC is the first institution in Yakima County to receive a grant from Pacific Power’s Blue Sky renewable energy program. The grant, in the amount of $97,476, was used to install a 30-kilowatt photovoltaic solar panel array on the roof of Glenn Anthon Hall. The solar array is estimated to produce 35619 kWh of AC energy annually. Along with the solar array, a monitoring system was installed in the foyer of the building. “The monitor provides educational opportunities for YVCC faculty to incorporate real world data from an active renewable energy system into their student’s curriculum,” according to Teresa Holland, YVCC’s vice president of administrative services.

“Projects like this bring so much together. The Blue Sky customers put their support for renewable energy into something very tangible and productive. The college gets help with its power costs and the students and community get access to a tremendous educational asset,” stated Bill Clemens, Pacific Power regional community manager.
