Lakewood High School in Arlington was awarded a Planet Power grant in April 2013. The installation of a 9.7 kW, 36-panel solar array started in October 2013, and the system went online in December. The grant was requested by the Lakewood High School Career and Technical Educational Department, who were looking for ways to educate students and community members about renewable energy resources. The system’s highly visible location, and the fact that it allows students to monitor how much energy is produced each day, offer ample educational opportunities. The system was installed by NW Wind & Solar.
