Perry Tech students undertake solar project with $74K grant

​Yakima Herald Republic

YAKIMA, Wash. — Perry Technical Institute students will be installing their own solar panels this fall, thanks to a $74,000 grant from Pacific Power for a new solar array for the school’s new building.

The 24.9 kilowatt solar array will provide hands-on training to students in the electrical and instrumentation programs, said instructor Ron Zike. The produced power will be sold to the utility.

“We’re trying to bring solar to our students,” Zike said. “We’re mainly doing it because we’re trying to stay on top of new technology. We’re a high-tech school, so we applied for the grant and we got it.”

Zike said that students will also be able to track the power output of the panels remotely and compare them with the system installed recently at Yakima Valley Community College and other solar systems around the region.

Female artists’ worldviews on display at Larson Gallery

​Yakima Herald Republic

“Visual Voices: Women Painters of Washington,” the new Larson Gallery exhibit, is both a celebration of individual expression and of collective strength.

The 63 pieces in the exhibit, which opened Thursday and runs through Feb. 21, are tied together by the broad notion of empowerment through art. But aside from that, they are as varied and wide-ranging as the members of the 85-year-old Women Painters of Washington organization.

“I wanted to show this whole idea of women’s voices, how they speak as artists,” said Larson Gallery Executive Director David Lynx, who curated the show. “I was also looking at marginalized voices and narratives.”
