Solar Washington‘s March Community Forum will be about “Community Solar in Washington,” and takes place Monday, March 14, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Seattle flagship REI store, at 222 Yale Ave N, just north of downtown hard by the I-5 freeway.
Lately, many Solar Washington members have been asking “What’s up with Washington’s recently-implemented, and innovative Community Solar program?”, so we’ve created a program just for you in March. We’ll break down the details with the state’s leading experts, and you’ll also get a preview of some the state’s larger and higher profile community solar projects that have a likelihood of occurring in 2011. Speakers will include:
- Mark Bohe, Tax Policy Specialist at WA Department of Revenue
- Joe Deets, Executive Director of Community Energy Solutions
- Stanley Florek, Chief Executive Officer of Tangerine Power
- Leslie Moynihan, Community Solar Program Manager, Seattle City Light
They’ll guide us through the ins and outs of community solar; current challenges, obstacles, and solutions; and what to expect from 2011 legislative interpretations and changes.
Plus we’ll all be treated to a presentation by Linda Irvine, Community Solar Project Manager for Northwest SEED, on the goals, status, and successes of Washington’s first “community based bulk purchasing program of solar electric systems” in progress with the innovative Solarize Queen Anne program.
We’ll also get a glimpse of what Solar Washington will be up to for 2011. We’ll introduce you to all the committees and will roll out our new business membership plan.
Don’t miss this enlightening and informative discussion if you want to play a part in the Community Solar phenomena that has the potential of, yet again, putting Washington State on the Nation’s “Solar Map”.
