A Note To Our Friends in Bellevue, WAMay 9, 2014
Are you a Bellevue resident, business or building owner? Are you interested in the economic and environmental benefits of solar, but haven’t committed to an installation? We have a proposition for you:
PPRC is helping Bellevue residents, building and business owners to install solar arrays. Through Solarize Washington, a project of NW Seed and funded through the State of Washington Dept. of Commerce, PPRC is joining the City of Bellevue to help community leaders organize a group purchase of solar power. A group purchase, or a “bulk buy,” allows residents to get solar for a more affordable price and with substantially more information and support than would be available if purchased as an individual.
Solarize U: Learn all about it!
If you’re a Bellevue property owner interested in the benefits of a group purchase or someone who’s sold on solar and wants to be involved in this one-year campaign, then we invite you to come learn about Solarize Bellevue. On Tuesday, May 13, the Solarize Bellevue partners are hosting a Solarize U training at the Mercer Slough Environmental Education Center, in Bellevue, from 6 – 9pm. The training will start to establish volunteer teams for neighborhood outreach and vendor selection.

The success of a neighborhood solar project depends on the energy and commitment of the participants. We thought Bellevue would be a perfect fit for such a project because we know that Bellevue has plenty of energetic citizens who are both environmentally and business conscious. So come join us if you want to get involved in the project, or even if you’re just curious to hear about the benefits of solar or the group purchasing process.
