Under clear blue sunny skies, Shoreline Solar Project celebrated the 14th annual NW SolarFest July 22 at Shoreline Community College.

Visitors came from all over the region to learn about the latest in sustainability products and services, participate in workshops, and enjoy the festival setting. Over 70 exhibitors including businesses and nonprofits participated.

Tiny House Expeditions from North Carolina

The festival welcomed special guests Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons of Tiny House Expeditions from North Carolina who visited with their self-built tiny home. Shoreline was one of many stops in their 25,000 mile journey around the US, sharing their film “Living Tiny Legally”.

Susan Bernado and Courtenay Fletcher

Author/Illustrator Susan Bernado and Courtenay Fletcher flew up from California to share their children’s book “The Big Adventures of Tiny House” inspired by Alexis and Christian’s house. They also did a reading at Third Place Books on Sunday and explored Seattle before their next destination.

Electric cars and bikes

Electric vehicles and electric bikes filled the Transportation Zone. Visitors were excited to support SolarFest by purchasing a chance to win an electric bike by the Presenting Sponsor Rad Power Bikes.

Home Depot had a Building Zone for the kids

The KIDZone was a safe place to run through the grass, make an energy pledge and play with solar cars. It sounded like Santa’s workshop with all the building activities at the Home Depot booth.

NW SolarFest thanks everyone who participated in this year’s event, including a valuable renewable resource; the power of volunteers.
