The intent of this Interdisciplinary Qualifying Project was to provide Treasure Valley Scout Reservation (TVSR) recommendations for sustainable energy solutions. This was completed to address concerns of future failure of the current underwater power cable. The project worked toward the development of a sustainability plan for TVSR’s West Camp and the future reduction of energy use in West Camp. Based on the collected and proposed building inventories, the hardware requirements for the recommended installations were determined. Recommendations included the optimal solar energy system to install, the best location(s) for potential installments, and a cost and risk assessment for installment.
