Traveling Renewable Energy Kiosk – TREK – was designed and built by our Energy Services team to show how alternative energy components can be integrated into a typical home. A travel trailer was used because it is mobile and has many of the same energy needs a home would use. This rolling educational display is a good teaching tool, both inside the trailer and outside, where large groups of students and the public can watch a monitor which displays various renewable energy topics and monitors actual renewable energy production.
Franklin PUD hopes to educate students, customers, and the public on the functionality and challenges of renewable energy. For more information or to schedule a demonstration, please contact Todd Blackman in Energy Services at 509-546-5946 or Debbie Bone-Harris in Public Affairs at 509-546-5973.
