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. There are two Community Workshops remaining: one on Saturday, Sept. 20 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Bellevue Arts Center, 9825 NE 24th St, Bellevue, WA 98004; and another that will be held in late October (not yet scheduled). 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.
