Snohomish PUD invites Everett residents to learn more about installing solar.

Not sure if it’s the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having, the 81 straight days of sunshine we had last summer or just general interest but the Snohomish PUD has a solar power meeting set up for May 21st in Everett. Here’s the scoop from Neil Neroutsos at Snohomish PUD…

Are you interested in learning about the financial and environmental benefits that come with owning your own solar energy system? Join Snohomish County Public Utility District this month for informational sessions about the utility’s Solar Express program, which offers a range of incentives and educational support for customers interested in solar energy. The utility’s program covers both solar photovoltaic (PV or solar electric) systems and solar hot water systems. In the past three years, the number of solar units has tripled in Snohomish County.

Solar Sessions:

Tuesday, May 21 – 6 to 7:30 p.m.

PUD Everett Commission Room, 2320 California Street

Wednesday, May 29 – 6 to 7:30 p.m.

PUD Edmonds/South County Office, 21018 Highway 99

Solar energy is a largely untapped source of renewable energy in Western Washington. With a photovoltaic system, a PUD customer can generate clean, green, renewable energy.

Cash Incentives/Loans:

Residential customers can qualify for up to $2,500 for solar photovoltaic systems and commercial customers can qualify for up to $10,000. All customers with electric water heaters can qualify for a $500 incentive on solar hot water systems. Residential customers may instead opt for a 2.9% APR loan up to $25,000 for photovoltaic systems and up to $14,000 for solar hot water systems. Customers may also qualify for additional federal tax credits and state production incentives.

Solar Express is one of the ways the PUD is promoting clean, locally-generated renewable resources. For more information, including meeting registration and program qualifications, call the PUD Energy Hotline at 425-783-1700 or visit www.snopud.com/solarexpress.
