Renewable energy exhibit coming to Discovery Center


Columbia Gorge Discovery Center dedicated their Renewable Energy Exhibit with a ribbon cutting ceremony, Friday, Aug. 28. The interpretive exhibit on solar energy includes schematics of solar energy systems and a real-time display of solar energy being produced.

Through a $50,000 grant provided by Google, the Discovery Center was able to build solar panels that also double as shade cover for the public picnic area.

Columbia Gorge Discovery Center partnered with the Delta Energy Club, which is composed of renewable energy students at Columbia Gorge Community College, to design and manage the project.
