Solarize U Trainings
About Solarize U
Building on the success of our Solarize Washington campaigns, Northwest SEED now offers Solarize U -- a training program that facilitates replication of the successful Solarize model across the state. Through delivery of Solarize U workshops and tools, Northwest SEED is strengthening the capacity of local leaders, nonprofit organizations, municipal governments, and electric utilities to implement Solarize programs in their own communities.
Solarize U trainings give attendees the skills, materials, connections, and know-how they need to launch a Solarize campaign in their community, including the following:
- Campaign Training: Trainings will provide an overview of the Solarize model, solar technology and incentives, and best practices for replication. Time will be provided for breakout sessions, where participants can connect with their colleagues and begin campaign planning. Northwest SEED will tailor specific training elements to meet the unique needs of the local area demographics.
- Program Materials: Participants will receive a Solarize U workbook, which provides an in-depth explanation of how to run a successful Solarize campaign. The workbook will contain program templates, marketing collateral, sample budgets, and related materials, and will be available in print and digital format.
Solarize U Outcomes & Communities
The impact of Solarize U has already extended beyond program trainings. Training participants will be encouraged to pursue a Solarize campaign in their community, and will have the opportunity to access assistance as needed. Northwest SEED envisions numerous direct and indirect outcomes arising from Solarize U, including capacity building, replication and distribution of best practices, and community empowerment.
