Employees are invited to a ribbon cutting on November 12 celebrating the completion of the solar panel installation at Olympia High School as part of a partnership between the school district and Puget Sound Energy (PSE).

The ribbon cutting ceremony begins at 4 p.m. in the Olympia High School Commons. Guests are asked to enter the Commons at the back of the school off Carlyon Avenue S.E.

The project features more than 500 rooftop solar panels and is part of PSE’s Community Solar Program, which adds solar energy to the local power grid from one large location.

PSE representatives, Superintendent Patrick Murphy, Olympia School Board members and other local dignitaries are expected to attend. No school board business will be conducted at this event.

Note: Please enter OHS through the Commons located behind the school off Carlyon Avenue S.E.
