When folks visit the Woodland Park Zoo, they check out the animals and take a spin on the historic carousel. But this popular attraction was recently given a high-tech, ecofriendly makeover — solar panels now power the fun. It’s part of Seattle City Light’s solar-panel demonstration project. And even in the gray Emerald City, Mother Nature still works her wonders to keep the fun going.
