About Solarize Washington

The Neighborhood Approach

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

Key features of Solarize Washington 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 Washington 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 Washington campaigns, including neighborhood organizations, solar installers, utilities, cities, financing institutions, and foundations.

"You just made it simple. I didn't have to interview contractors, do the paperwork or research myself, and I liked the idea of a community solar project."
