Solar power

Last week marked the culmination of a project to bring solar power to Anacortes High School. A few dozen students and community supporters gathered on a sunny Thursday afternoon to officially “switch on” power from a solar panel installed on the roof near the south entrance to the high school. Among those present were volunteer Bud Anderson (left), a Tesoro electrical engineer who contributed his expertise to the project. Pictured with Anderson is science teacher Victor Garcia, who with math teacher Jeff Hotgeerts will gather data and utilize the solar-electric system to teach their students. Student Robert Dyer has worked to keep the AHS project on track after the graduation of project originator Kirsten Woodsmith in 2008. Dyer flipped the switch to start the solar generator.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
