Coyote Ridge is Using Solar Panels to Save Energy

Posted: Updated:

CONNELL, Wash. - Sunshine is paying the electricity bill in Connell.

The Coyote Ridge Correctional Facility has installed solar panels to help produce electricity for the prisons warehouse.

It cuts the use of power in the warehouse by 20%.  Which is enough electricity to power more than 500 televisions.

Search under the "On-Air Links" tab to see how much energy is produced by the solar panels in real time at Coyote Ridge.
