I’ll bet you’ve caught yourself wondering, “Just which block in Wallingford contains greatest concentration of solar panels?” Well, wonder no more: It’s my block, the 3800 of Bagley.
What do we do with all of that solar love? Well, since it’s Earth Day and since we love the Earth and our neighbors, we are hosting an open house! That’s right, you are invited to gawk at our fabulous solar panels, ask us your questions (even the ones that involve dollar amounts) and learn more about putting solar on your house – this Sunday from 2-4 pm.
Northwest SEED, the organizing force behind this tour is also the group bringing the “Solarize Seattle” program to Wallingford. Alex from NW SEED wrote:
People taking part in the nonprofit-led Solarize campaign qualify for special pricing and incentives that make solar more affordable than ever. Homeowners and businesses take advantage of a group-buy discount and learn how solar works in Seattle, how it is installed, what incentives are available to bring the price down, and how low-interest financing can spread out the cost.
The Solarize Seattle: Northwest Solar Tour will feature three routes—one each in Wallingford, Phinney Ridge, and Ballard. Participants are welcome to complete the entire tour, or simply visit a few homes nearby. Earth-friendly modes of transportation are encouraged.
Solarize Seattle: Northwest is Northwest SEED’s sixth Solarize campaign, offered in partnership with Seattle City Light.
Registration for Solarize Seattle: Northwest is open at www.solarizewa.org through April 22. Registration is open to homeowners and small businesses in 98103, 98107, 98117, 98133, and 98177 zip codes, within City of Seattle limits. A final free educational workshop will be held on April 24. For more information, visit www.solarizewa.org.
So there you have it, neighbors! Take a tour of Bagley Ave, the solar-ist block in Wallingford. My neighbors and I promise that you will be inspired to put solar panels (or a solar hot water system) on your house. Power from the sun. In Seattle. It’s a great energy saver and conversation starter!
