Solarize U Trainings

About Solarize U

Learn to run your own Solarize Campaign! Solarize U is Northwest SEED’s training program so we can replicate the successful Solarize model across the state. Solarize U workshops and tools strengthen the capacity of local leaders, nonprofit organizations, municipal governments, and electric utilities to lead Solarize programs in their own communities.

Solarize U trainings give attendees the skills, materials, connections, and know-how they need to launch a Solarize campaign in their community, including:

  • Campaign Training: Trainings provide an overview of the Solarize model, solar technology and incentives, and best practices for leading a campaign.  Breakout sessions enable participants to connect with their colleagues and begin campaign planning. We tailor specific training elements to meet the unique needs of the local area demographics.
  • Program Materials: Participants receive a Solarize U workbook, which provides an in-depth explanation of how to run a successful Solarize campaign.  The workbook contains program templates, marketing collateral, sample budgets, and related materials, and is available in print and digital format.
