  • Sunday, June 24th, 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm, Seattle Public Library, West Seattle Branch, 2306 42nd Ave. SW

WSSP is the first solar campaign of The Cascadia Solar Project, whose mission is to jumpstart and dramatically increase the number of photovoltaic installations around the Puget Sound, especially in underrepresented neighborhoods. The project uses Made-In-Washington modules and inverters, and all participants will receive the same low $/watt price. The only major variables will be system size and whether or not the customer wants financing.

Vashon-based Artisan Electric Inc. will be the project manager for the campaign, and is currently collaborating with community groups in West Seattle to get the word out. Additional partners include Silicon Energy, a Marysville-based solar module and inverter manufacturer, and Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union (PSCCU), a local credit union that provides solar financing in the Puget Sound region.
