For those interested in buying discounted solar panels through Solarize Seattle: Magnolia, you are running out of time.
Next Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m., the Solarize Seattle: Magnolia program will host its final public meeting at Discovery Park to answer questions about the program and solar power in general. The group is giving Magnolia residents until the end of this month to register for their limited-time assistance in solar panel installation.
The meeting, slated for the park’s visitors center, serves as the last educational workshop put on by Solarize: Magnolia, the brainchild of several local clean energy advancement groups. The parent programs, including Northwest SEED, Sustainable Magnolia and Puget Sound Solar, will all present at the meeting to give interested community members more information about the benefits of solar energy.
Since their initial outreach began in June, Solarize: Magnolia has already registered nearly 150 residents, yet campaign leaders hope to obtain many more following the workshop.
“I don’t have any magical number,” said Pam Lewis, a co-chair of the Sustainable Magnolia program, “I just want to engage as many people interested in solar as possible.
