SunModo, Corp., a leading racking and mounting solutions provider for solar power systems, is proud to partner with Solar Oregon to support the Jewell School Project.
Last month, the school spent $10,600 to install a 12-panel, 3 kilowatt solar array that will help keep its new barn powered off the grid. “It’s what we call an off-grid system,” said volunteer Cliff Schrock, Sunmodo’s solar consultant who’s helping install the new array, while teaching periodic classes in Jewell School on his trade. “A lot of people live off-grid with this amount of power.” The 12 solar panels were donated by SolarWorld USA out of Hillsboro and the racking were donated by Sunmodo. The inverter used to control the system was made by OutBack Power Systems of Arlington, Wash., and sold to the district at-cost by Platt Electric.
