Solarize Seattle: Northwest—the innovative solar bulk purchase campaign spearheaded by Northwest SEED and Seattle City Light—has just reached an exciting milestone.
As of this week, 100 Northwest Seattle residents have contracted to install residential solar systems through the program. This equates to nearly 450 kilowatts of clean, renewable energy that will energize our region for generations to come.
Northwest Seattleites have come out en masse to demonstrate their support for solar energy—free public workshops held this spring attracted more than 600 residents interested in the program. The 100 that have moved forward with a solar installation are simultaneously demonstrating support for local businesses. More than 85 percent of participating homeowners have opted to install solar modules that were manufactured in Washington.
