Objective: To learn about alternative energy, analyze solar data.
Introduction: Solar generation is being introduced in Northern communities as a wave to reduce reliance on diesel electricity generation. The strength of this technology is in its renewability and decrease on dependence of shipped materials, however, it is also subject to presence of sunlight. This lesson helps students research this type of solar energy and how much can be produced by a Northern array (Colville Lake).
