September 16, 2022


The Snohomish PUD will be holding an open house on Saturday September 17th from 11:00 AM – 3 PM at Walter Hall Park in south Everett (1226 W. Casino Road) to explain their solar project happening just east of the park. There will be food, games and activities for the kids. Here’s more.

The PUD is partnering with the City of Everett on a solar project that is planned to be built in south Everett and will generate funds to assist the PUD’s Project PRIDE program, which assists income-qualified PUD customers. The planned solar array will have a capacity of 375 kilowatts, generating enough electricity to power approximately 40 homes.

Instead of selling energy units to customers like the PUD’s first Community Solar project in Arlington, the funds generated by this solar array will be donated to Project PRIDE, which is administered by St. Vincent de Paul. Project PRIDE, which provides one-time grants for families and individuals who need help paying their energy bills, helped more than 600 customers in 2021.

Construction of the project is scheduled to begin later this year.

The PUD was awarded a grant worth $861,814 under the Washington Clean Energy Fund 3 Low-Income Community Solar Deployment Program to help pay for the project. Washington State’s Clean Energy Fund is managed by the Washington State Department of Commerce, which supports the development, demonstration and deployment of clean energy technology.
