Please join Northwest SEED and a coalition of Northwest Seattle community groups for a volunteer orientation to kick off our newest Solarize campaign!  Registration for Solarize Seattle: Northwest will launch in January 2013, but we need your help NOW to begin contractor selection and outreach planning.

Solarize Seattle: Northwest will target neighborhoods in zip codes 98103, 98107, 98117, 98133, and 98177 (within City of Seattle limits).  We welcome volunteer representatives from all neighborhoods within this geographic area.

The two hour training will consist of (1) a volunteer orientation, and (2) an optional contractor selection team kickoff.  The training is scheduled for Wednesday, November 7 at the Phinney Neighborhood Center (home of the PNA).  The agenda is as follows:

  • 6:00-7:00 -- Volunteer Orientation
    • Welcome & introductions
    • Program overview
    • Program messaging
    • Volunteer roles
  • 7:00-8:00 -- Contractor Selection Team Kickoff (optional)
    • Team tasks
    • Getting familiar with the RFP template
    • Next steps


Solarize Seattle: Northwest is a program of Northwest SEED, with support from Seattle City Light, the Phinney Neighborhood Association, Sustainable Greenwood-Phinney, Phinney Ridge Community Council, Greenwood Community Council, Green Lake Community Council, Wallingford Meaningful Movies, and Sustainable Seattle.

What your neighbors are saying

"I had been waiting for the right time to install solar. I'd previously written off the idea as not economically feasible. I was not aware of the availability of more than one manufacturer. The program led me to re-evaluate and I found that I could design a system that actually penciled out with the Washington production incentive."
