Going off the grid

Posted: July 6th, 2011 by Just Real Seattle

An innovative sustainable energy project is taking shape between Seattle’s City Light, Parks Deptartment and Seattleites. Community Solar intends to green up the Emerald City and begin taking energy production off the grid.

The first of such projects is slated for Beacon Hill’s Jefferson Park. There picnic shelters will be covered with solar panels, generating an estimated 24,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean, renewable electricity each year – enough to run three households or brew 146,000 pots of coffee.

Participants who invest in the program will receive annual credits for electricity generated by their portion of the project, annual production credits from the Washington State Renewable Energy Production Incentive Program and their name (or the name of a friend or family member) permanently displayed at the Community Solar project.
