Shoreline Clean Energy Technology students go off-grid to generate power
Students in Shoreline’s Clean Energy Tech program complete a mock installation of a battery based photovoltaic system on the demonstration roof next to the Zero Energy House on Shoreline’s campus.
As the energy industry continues to advance, Shoreline’s Clean Energy Technology (CET) program remains nimble in its course offerings to anticipate and meet the growing needs of employers and consumers. In a new class added in winter of 2016, Shoreline students got to delve into the world of off-grid power generation and storage, a hot topic in the energy industry.
This winter, Shoreline’s Clean Energy Technology (CET) program students got real-world training on how to work with clients in an industry setting. In January, following months of research, students in the Zero Energy Design Practicum class presented an in-depth solar installation proposal to a board of managers and directors at the State of Washington’s Public Health Laboratories.
The Clean Energy Technology Associate in Applied Arts and Sciences degree is designed to provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills necessary for a career in sustainable design, construction, maintenance and management.
