The exhibit, funded by Google and Bonneville Environmental Foundation, adds to the available power utilized by the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Museum, and provides an educational opportunity on using solar power as a renewable energy resource. The exhibit is in three locations; the Solar Pavilion, sponsored by Google, is an interpretive exhibit on renewable energy that includes schematics of solar energy systems and a real-time display inside the museum of solar energy being produced. The Bonneville Foundation sponsored exhibit on renewable energy is an interactive display that highlights alternative energy sources.

This exhibit was made possible in part through a $50,000 grant provided by Google and a $25,000 grant provided by Bonneville Environmental Foundation. The project was planned by the Delta Energy Club at Columbia Gorge Community College, and installed by Hire Electric.

Coffee, punch and cookies provided. The event is free to the public.
