The Bike Works community bike show on Ferdinand Street just got a whole lot greener.
Last week, a stellar crew from Artisan Electric came in and installed a new solar array on the roof of the shop. On a sunny day, our electric meter runs backwards, meaning we are producing more electricity than our shop uses and are pumping that excess out into the power grid!
Best of all, this solar electric system was FREE as part of the Solarize Seattle: Central/Southeast project!
