ASES National Solar Tour

The Oregon School District built a 126,000 square foot new construction elementary school, Forest Edge Elementary School in 2020. The key sustainability requirement of the new elementary school was to be a zero-energy building. This is defined as “an energy-efficient building where, on a source energy basis, the actual annual delivered energy is less than or equal to the on-site renewable exported energy” as defined by the U.S. Department of Energy. It will be the first net zero energy school in the state of Wisconsin, offsetting 100% of all on-site energy needs. The 646kW DC/500kW AC rooftop solar PV system and geothermal heating and cooling system will be leveraged as educational tools for the school and the larger community. The school includes a viewing area to see the roof mounted system and will also include an energy dashboard that can be viewed through an internet connection by anyone interested in learning about the school’s sustainability features and ongoing energy performance compared to the net zero energy target.
