If you have wanted to attend a Solarize Shoreline workshop, but have not, now is your last chance. Solarize Shoreline will hold its final workshop on Tuesday, September 27, 7:00 to 8:30pm at Shoreline City Hall. Register here
Solarize Shoreline is an initiative to bring solar energy to homes and businesses within the City of Shoreline. It is a limited-time campaign designed to help homeowners and small businesses purchase solar electric systems with a streamlined process and group discount. Solarize Shoreline is a collaborative effort of Northwest Sustainable Energy for Economic Development (Northwest SEED), City of Shoreline, and a team of community volunteers.
A volunteer committee selected Northwest Electric and Solar as the solar installer for the campaign. The committee made its selection through a competitive process. Participants in the campaign will be eligible not only for a group discount, but also for federal and state incentives for solar energy.
“Many people don’t realize that the price of solar has dropped over 50% in the past five years, so going solar is more achievable than you might think,” said Jill Eikenhorst, project coordinator for Northwest SEED.
“With federal and state incentives and the Solarize discount, solar is an effective way to lock in energy prices and produce clean energy that you can feel good about.”
To qualify for a free site assessment and community pricing, interested residents and business owners should attend the final free educational workshop if they have not attended one already. Workshop attendees will learn about the technology; site assessments and installation; costs and incentives; and maintenance. Register here
The workshop is free and open to the public. Residents and businesses in Shoreline are eligible for the group discount.
