Solarize Seattle: Southwest

Thanks for making Solarize Seattle: Southwest a success!

We launched our tenth campaign, Solarize Seattle: Southwest, with our project partners Seattle City Light, Sustainable West Seattle, Sustainable Burien, and the installation team Artisan Electric & Puget Sound Solar.  The campaign served as a solar group purchase program for residents who live south of Downtown, west of I-5, and north of the Seattle City Light service boundary (southwest Seattle, Burien, North Highline, and Tukwila).

Now that registration has closed and installations are complete, we’re excited to start generating some solar energy. Thanks to everyone that took the time to learn about solar and participate in this project to make this campaign a great success!
