Registration is coming to an end! Last workshop April 28th.

Join us Saturday, April 28th to learn how you can participate in the limited-time Solarize Seattle: Northeast campaign.  Solarize is a Northwest SEED initiative designed to bring solar energy to local homes and businesses.  In your neighborhood, we've partnered with Sustainable NE Seattle and local installers to help neighbors come together to enjoy significant discounts through the group purchase of solar systems.

 

Workshop attendees will learn about the Solarize program, solar PV technology, and financing and incentives.  Workshop attendance will put you on the fast track to a free site assessment and your Solarize discount.  Don't miss your chance to get a deal that makes a difference!

 

For more information, please visit www.solarizewa.org or contact Alexandra Sawyer at alex@nwseed.org or (206) 457-5403.  

In a Nutshell:

Solarize Seattle is neighbors gathering together to install solar-electric systems on their homes while leveraging their numbers to obtain volume discounts from vetted contractor/installers.

A local non-profit Northwest Seed, is providing consultation and technical assistance.  Recently, a pilot project on Queen Anne was completed.  Currently, there is a Solarize project underway in Magnolia.  Northeast Seattle is schedule to begin in January of 2012.

Called Solarize NE Seattle, residents living in the 98115, 98105 and 98125 zip codes will be invited to attend informational workshops to learn more about the Solarize process beginning in January 2012.

That's fantastic!  I hope this translates to a bunch more systems in the neighborhood.  Heads up- we're having our annual Solar Cookout on July 8th at Hunter Tree Farm- I was thinking this would be a great time to celebrate the success of Solarize NE.  What do you guys think?

We did it!  Solarize NE had a grand total of 356 registrants as of this morning’s close of registration.  Big thank you to all of you for helping to get the word out via house parties, flyering, tabling, bus/radio ads, and more!

Oh, shoot- it was so fun to see where all of the possible projects were going in. Can the map be recreated without the customer info? Just so we could all see general locations and status of the installations?
