Under the power of the sun, Shoreline Solar Project celebrated the 15th annual NW SolarFest July 28 at Shoreline Community College.

Interior of the Living Vehicle

Also at the fair was Living Vehicle, a mobile living space designed for full time use with extended off grid living features.

Test drives in the Tesla

There were a lot of electric cars, but it was the
electric truck that caught the attention of the visitors

Electric vehicles and electric bikes filled the Transportation Zone. Visitors were able take a test ride in an electric car, including the Leaf and the Tesla and test ride an electric bike through the campus of the college.

Rad Power Bikes raffled an electric bike

Visitors were excited to support SolarFest by purchasing a chance to win an electric bike by the Presenting Sponsor Rad Power Bikes.


The KIDZone was a safe place to run through the grass, make an energy pledge and play with solar cars. Kids were busy at the Home Depot building workshop and PCC’s Make your Own Trail Mix tables, and kids enjoyed the visits from the Bubbleman and the Brain Waite Band.

Entertainment on the Showmobile stage

The entertainment was outstanding on the Showmobile Stage. Thanks to the Shoreline/LFP Arts Council for its use.

We thank each and everyone one of our participants, sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, performers and volunteers and the community that supports this event.

Thank you for coming and mark your calendar for the 16th NW SolarFest on July 27, 2019.
