Perry Technical Institute

Yakima, WA

Perry Technical Institute is a nonprofit technical school in Yakima, Washington that provides students of all ages with the skills and work habits they need to succeed. During a campus expansion project, Perry Tech sought to incorporate alternative energy and create new hands-on opportunities for students. In 2015, Perry Tech installed a 15.68-kilowatt solar project atop the new Plath Hall.

Perry Tech used the solar project as a learning opportunity for students in the electrical technology program who installed the solar array with guidance from their instructors. Students and visitors to the campus can view energy production from a display in the lobby of the building.
