The Motivation

The City of Kirkland is partnering with PPRC to initiate the Solarize Kirkland program that will help Kirkland’s residents be able to purchase affordable, clean energy to power their homes and businesses. 

The Project

solar installation 029By organizing a group purchase, or “bulk buy,” the campaign aims to help Kirkland 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.

In bringing more solar power to Kirkland, PPRC is proud to partner with Puget Sound EnergyNW Sustainable Energy for Economic Development (SEED) and Solarize Washington.NWElecLogoPDF-page-001

In June of 2015, Kirkland’s volunteer contractor selection committee chose Northwest Electric & Solar to be the exclusive contractor for the Kirkland Solarize campaign. Northwest Electric & Solar has an excellent reputation in the Seattle area for its professionalism and experience.

As of January 1, 2016, the Solarize Kirkland campaign has installed 41 solar systems. Read a testimonial from one Kirkland family who installed solar on their home in 2015. For more details about the campaign, check out the January, 2016 newsletter, which details the recently extended state and federal solar incentives.

The campaign will continue throughout 2016.
