City Light Transfers Shoreline’s First Public Solar Project to Meridian Park Elementary

Students and teachers at Meridian Elementary cheer the transfer of Shoreline’s first public solar project to the school.

Seattle City Light transferred ownership of a solar array at Meridian Park Elementary to the school at a ceremony on Oct. 24.

The 2.4 kW system was installed in 2004, becoming Shoreline’s first public solar project. Students and their teachers listened to short presentations from the founders of the Shoreline Solar Project, State Sen. Maralyn Chase (D-Shoreline), and City Light’s renewable energy team.

City Light has installed more than 30 solar demonstration projects throughout its service territory since 2000.
