Yes! Solar Power Works Great In Seattle & Puget Sound Areas!
Although the Seattle and Puget Sound areas receive fewer annual hours of sunlight than most other states, did you know that solar panels actually operate at a greater efficiency in cooler climates? This makes the Seattle Washington & Puget Sound region an excellent place for solar power. In addition, our long summer days and cooler climate result in our solar panel systems out-performing many southern locations during the summertime. Our systems produce solar electricity even during the winter. Solar power is a very attractive solution to today’s energy problems, and the Puget Sound receives up to 70% of the sunlight that Los Angeles does!
Germany receives less sunlight than the Seattle & Puget Sound region, yet it accounts for 13.5% of the world’s solar panel electric installations. Germany is expecting to be 100% green for its national energy usage by 2050. When Germany can produce that much solar energy with less sunlight, there is no reason not to go solar here in the Northwest.
