Solar Installation Affords Collaboration with Shoreline CC

A new solar array now sits atop North Seattle College’s Education Building, installed in March after a two-year process of grant writing, vendor selection, and the shaping of an educational collaboration between North and Shoreline Community College.

While not a large system in comparison to those installed at the University of Washington and Bellevue College, North Seattle College’s new solar installation is impressive for its potential as an educational tool. It has unique tracking ability in two axes and is the first installation of its kind to be mounted on the roof of a building rather than on the ground.

The Native Lands Restoration project at North Seattle College

Fleabane

One thing that sets the NSC campus apart from its neighboring properties is the large urban forests that cover the North and South end of campus. These forested areas were actually at one time suburban neighborhoods that were demolished and essentially left alone to re-naturalize over time. The problem with doing this is that suburban yards are usually a host of exotic and invasive species that left unchecked can take over an entire forest.
