If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us one thing, it’s to be prepared. That’s the thinking behind the new Beaverton Safety Center. Scheduled to be open Fall of 2020, this state-of-the-art facility features a microgrid of solar, battery storage and a new backup generator that is connected with PGE’s grid.
The new center will house the Beaverton Police Department and Emergency Management program and provide essential community services. The building is designed to remain fully operational and provide uninterrupted emergency services to the community after a major earthquake or disaster.
“Beaverton’s Public Safety Center is designed to meet the community’s needs for years to come,” said City of Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle. “We’re proud to have this critical facility in our city and grateful for this partnership project with PGE, which further demonstrates our commitment to working together for a more sustainable and responsive community.”
