Sustainable Magnolia is looking for residents who are interested in adding solar panels to their home or small business. The non-profit Northwest SEED (Sustainable Energy for Economic Development) has chosen the Magnolia/Interbay area as the next neighborhood in Seattle to participate in Solarize Seattle. The zip codes that are eligible are 98199 and 98119 (west of 15th Ave West).
This project is designed to reduce the cost of adding solar panels to your home, small condo or small business. By coming together as a group, participants will get a solar contractor who has been already been selected based on quality, capability, and price. Solarize Magnolia participants will also be able to take advantage of Federal and State tax incentives for renewable energy.
In the just completed Solarize Queen Anne project, there were 30 solar installations with 130 total kilowatts (kw) installed. The average installation was 4.5 kw.
If you want more information, you can register here starting July 18th and attend an informational workshop on the following dates:
? Saturday, July 23, 11:30-1pm at the Magnolia Library;
? Wednesday, August 24, 7-8:30pm at the Discovery Park ELC;
? Saturday, September 24, 11:30-1pm at the Magnolia Library;
