OWEN BLANK SOLAR PROJECT

POWERED BY THE SUN
On March 21, 2016 Albina Head Start embarked on an ambitious plan to bring solar power to our schools and more renewable energy education to our classrooms. Fast forward to today, and our solar installation is providing 70% of Owen Blank’s annual electricity
use from the sun!
Our students are now able to see first- hand how sunlight is converted into electricity. Solar education is also receiving more focus in Albina Head Start’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program. This focus on STEM empowers our students, families, and our community to build a sustainable future for everyone.
Albina Head Start would like to thank Blue Sky customers and Pacific Power for their generous donation to make this solar project possible. We would also like to thank the Oregon Community Foundation and United Fund Advisors for their financial support of this important sustainability effort!
