About Solarize Northwest

The Neighborhood Approach

Solarize Northwest is a Northwest SEED initiative designed to bring solar energy to Washington homes.  By partnering with community groups and local installers, we help neighbors come together to save time and money through the group purchase of solar systems.  The Solarize initiative provides a streamlined process through which neighbors can collectively decide where to start, what to buy, and who to hire.

Key features of Solarize Northwest include:

  • Grassroots outreach and promotion by neighborhood volunteers
  • Competitively selected contractors with set prices
  • Free educational workshops for all participants
  • Free site assessments for all participants to determine solar suitability
  • A limited time offer to get the best deal on solar around!

A Program of Northwest SEED


Solarize Northwest is a program of Northwest SEED, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting clean energy to communities across the Northwest.  We work with a number of groups to implement Solarize Northwest campaigns, including neighborhood organizations, solar installers, utilities, cities, financing institutions, and foundations.

What your neighbors are saying

"This was a wonderful program. I had long wanted to install solar but lacked the time and energy (no pun intended) to make it happen. Your web seminar was clear, concise, and to the point. Everything was easy, from start to finish, and I really think that is the main strength of the program. Thanks so much for doing this."
