Solarize Seattle has just announced that it successfully exceeded its goal to sign 60 contracts for solar power systems at homes and businesses in Central Seattle. In fact, Solarize Seattle has 65 contracts signed for systems in the area, meaning Central District nonprofit Clean Greens Farm & Market (along with Bike Works) will receive donated 3 kW solar systems.
The donation is a project of Solarize Seattle, part of Northwest Sustainable Energy for Economic Development (Northwest SEED) and Seattle City Light. It aims to increase solar energy installations through a group purchase, which will bring down the price for each home. To participate in the project, you must have attended one of several free public workshops to learn more about solar energy and to receive a free site assessment for your home or business.
Solarize Seattle is still conducting site assessments and is hoping to get another 35 customers on board, bringing their total to 100.
