Solar power at the Seattle Aquarium
In partnership with Seattle City Light, the Seattle Aquarium installed a 49-kilowatt-hour photovoltaic array on the roof of Pier 59. The array generates electricity for Seattle City Light’s second Community Solar project. To view live readings of how much power the Community Solar project is generating at the Seattle Aquarium and to learn more about solar power, click here.

Interested in curriculum and activities? Developed and managed by Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF), Solar 4R Schools provides schools nationwide with hands-on teaching tools such as science kits, lesson plans and photovoltaic solar arrays so students can learn about solar, wind and other renewable energy technologies.
