You are invited to help build Community Solar today!
How can one person help build a sustainable energy future? Seattle City Light is inviting you to make that difference today — by becoming a Founding Member of Seattle’s first Community Solar project.
Community Solar is an innovative, shared resource approach for using clean, renewable solar energy for power.
As a Founding Member of Seattle Community Solar, you will help fund a landmark solar project this fall — a series of three new solar picnic shelters at Jefferson Park in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Seattle. The picnic shelters will feature roofs constructed of Washington-made solar panels, supporting local green jobs.
How much does it cost?
The Community Solar project is made up of 500 solar units. Each unit has a one-time, upfront cost of $600. Customers may purchase a maximum of two units. Each solar unit is estimated to produce 50 kWh of electricity per year through the June 2020 program end date.
What benefits will I receive as a Founding Member?
- A credit on your electric bill every year through 2020, for both the electricity generated and the Washington State Renewable Energy Production Incentive. See reverse for details.
- Your name or the name of a friend or family member permanently displayed at the Community Solar site at Jefferson Park.
