The workshops have now ended and solar contractors Puget Sound Solar and Artisan Electric are busy responding to all the interest generated in NW Seattle. More than 650 Northwest Seattle residents attended the workshops and as of yesterday 100 have signed contracts. Hundreds more have received a site assessment and are in the midst of the decision-making process.
What’s more, those 100 Solarizers have helped us power past another big milestone. With the help of Northwest Seattle residents, Solarize Washington participants have collectively installed more than ONE MEGAWATT of new solar power since the program launched in 2011.

Thank you to NW Seed and Seattle City Light for bringing such a great program to our neighborhood, to Bill Thorness and the organizing group for catalyzing us and our partner organizations into action, and to all of you that have been so instrumental in getting the word out about Solarize! Contracting will wrap up within the next two months—so there is much more to come!
