All are welcome to attend the orientation, which will include an introduction to solar energy technology and costs and a discussion of the values and characteristics that the community is looking for in a solar contractor.

Solarize Washington is a community-led effort to simplify and cut the cost of investing in a solar electric system through public education and group discounts. The West Seattle campaign will kick off in July, with volunteers selecting a solar contractor and planning outreach efforts starting in May.

Northwest SEED is launching a Solarize campaign this spring in West Seattle. This will be the 8th campaign organized by Northwest SEED; previous campaigns have resulted in discounts of up to 20% off the cost of a solar system, nearly 500 solar installations, and an investment of over $12 million in our local economy.

Solarize Seattle is a community-led effort designed to accelerate the installation of solar electric systems for homeowners through public education and a group purchase discount. The program is managed by the local environmental non-profit Northwest SEED, in partnership with Seattle City Light. More information about the project can be found on our website

In order to have a successful campaign in West Seattle, Northwest SEED is seeking the support of local neighborhood groups, as well as individual volunteers, who can help select a solar contractor to serve the neighborhood, organize public educational workshops, and help spread the word about this opportunity. Their goal is to organize a volunteer orientation meeting in late April and start the process of selecting a solar contractor in May. The campaign will officially launch with public workshops in July.
