Building Community, Building Lives

I’ve always been attracted to helping the environment.  When I heard that we were doing that at PYB, I wanted to be a part of it.

Generous Donations Allow PYB to Go Solar

Generous Donations Allow PYB to Go Solar

Green Mountain Energy Company recently unveiled a solar donation at PYB. This $20,000 gift was fully funded by the donations of Green Mountain employees through the Green Mountain Energy Sun Club®; all contributions to the Sun Club fund solar projects at non-profit organizations. We are proud to be the Sun Club's first solar donation in Portland.

PYB students will also get the opportunity for hands-on learning opportunities by assisting in the installation and documentation of the project and become advocates for sustainable design. Imagine Energy and GreenSavers are partnering to install the 8.8 kW photovoltaic solar system. Each year, the system will save PYB $839 and produce enough energy to offset more than 5,600 lbs of burned coal. PYB students will help install the solar array on our roof in the coming months. Watch for photos and video of the completed solar project in spring 2015!
