Solar is an increasingly viable option for homeowners and businesses that want to save in the long term on electricity bills while also having a positive environmental impact. Solarize Bellevue is a neighborhood solar purchasing campaign that provides residents and businesses with reduced cost, headache-free solar installations on their homes, businesses, or multi-family units.
By organizing a group purchase, or “bulk buy,” the campaign aims to help Bellevue residents and businesses achieve an affordable and successful solar installation. This type of program has been widely successful across regions including Seattle, Snohomish County, and more broadly on a national scale, from Portland to New York – with savings as much as 20% on average when compared to acquiring solar systems independently.
PPRC is proud to partner with City of Bellevue , NW Seed and Solarize Washington in organizing a group purchase of panels and installation for Bellevue residents. As part of securing the right solar deal, we are providing organizational and informational support to the Bellevue community throughout the campaign. The Solarize Bellevue Vendor Selection Committee chose Northwest Electric & Solar as its contractor and the company is now conducting site assessments.
If you’re interested in getting involved in the group purchase, registration information is available on the Green WA website. Due to popular demand, we’ve added two more Community Workshops. These workshops have been proved informative and popular gatherings. They allow those considering solar to have all their questions answered in an open forum. The final two workshops are scheduled for:
- Tuesday, October 21, 6-8pm – Bellevue City Hall, Council Chambers
- Wednesday, November 5, 6-8pm – Online Webinar – Please register here: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/311265318
Those participating in the campaign must attend a Community Workshop to receive the benefits of the bulk purchase. For more information about this project, or to get involved, please email our Executive Director, Paula Del Giudice.
