PUD Looking For Solar Project Placements in Everett

February 1, 2015


The Snohomish PUD is looking for partners in Everett and Snohomish County for solar panel projects. In the past Trinity Lutheran College, Everett Community College and the Carl Gipson Senior Center have all had solar projects installed at their locations. Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested.

Solar panels were installed on the Carl Gipson Senior Center in downtown Everett back in 2011.

Snohomish County Public Utility District is seeking applications from local organizations for solar energy demonstration projects for installation on new or existing buildings in the utility’s service area. The projects are made possible through the PUD’s Planet Power program, a voluntary, customer-funded green energy initiative. Proposals for PUD funding are due on March 16, 2015.

“Planet Power has funded 29 local solar projects, which help the community learn more about this energy source,” said PUD CEO & General Manager Steve Klein. “The solar installations are part of a larger commitment to development of local renewable energy sources right here in Western Washington.”

The PUD expects to award grants for up to six solar projects this year. Planet Power also has supported solar energy curriculum at several local schools.

Interested organizations can get more details from the PUD here. Specific questions can be directed to Beth Robinweiler at 425-783-8515. Customers can also visit the website to learn how they can enroll in the program to support local solar energy.

The PUD expects projects to be installed during the summer and fall of 2015.
