Since he was a child, Scott has been excited about solar energy. As an adult, he followed its evolution, did extensive research, and 25 years later, Scott & Bev went solar! They were smart in their approach, first, researching which panels would work best for their home. Second, they studied the success of Germany’s solar implementation and the similarities the Pacific Northwest shares in…
There are many reasons homeowners decide to go solar: financial incentives, powering their home with clean energy, adding to their home’s resale value and working to combat climate change. When Mac Taylor decided to go solar, it was from a place of environmental stewardship and smart finances. As a pastor, Mac has committed his life to caring for the world and its people. The positive effects…
Roshelle’s middle school science teacher, Mr Clark, will be glad to know that a demonstration on solar energy made quite an impression on her. This self described “tree hugger” first became fascinated by solar energy in the 7th grade, and now Roshelle has her own solar power station!  Summertime in the Yakima Valley can bring high temps and high bills, Roshelle signed up to go solar with the…
Environmental concerns topped the list for Town & Country Market when they first looked at solar.  After attending a solar workshop and working with Greg Williams, one of the employee-owners of Sunergy Systems, the T&C owners felt that solar was part of the answer to their mounting electric bills.  As responsible grocers, the owners of Town & Country Market made the decision to…
This month the Haziq family is our Project of the Month.  The Haziq family from Bonney Lake made the choice to go solar recently as a way of doing their part to help combat climate change. Mustafa  Haziq is uncertain of the scope of the impact humans are making on our climate. But what was certain was his family’s desire to become sustainable, reduce their carbon footprint and help future…
The Valley View Sewer District and Water District #125 were a bit before their time when they installed a six-panel 1kW solar pv system way back in 2006. Their environmentally conscious decisions continued in 2013 with the purchase of two systems to offset the electric bills of Valley View Sewer District and the Water Sewer District Condo Association created to manage their joint administration…
Greg Freitag became one of Sunergy Systems’s 600 customers when he decided to go solar back in March 2013. He was among the many Pacific Northwesterners that were skeptical about solar’s capability in our little corner of the world. However, Greg was prompted to explore solar by his son who lives in sunny California.“Living in the cloudy and rainy NW, I erroneously assumed that solar was really…
Patti Kashiwa is a local resident to Northwest Seattle. The idea of solar was in the future. The Kashiwa residence joined 52 families who went solar as a part of the Go Solar Seattle Northwest program. “I had been thinking about putting solar panels up for some time but I was not sure how to make the installation. When I received a flyer from Go Solar Northwest I thought that this was my…
 A local family chooses to go solar for three households. Judy Willingham recognizes the importance of reducing her carbon footprint by going solar and she has passed that idea on to her son Dodd. Dodd and his wife Joana also had solar installed at their own home and at their rental property too. “We are going to be moving backward in comfort rather than forward in comfort if we don’t make some…
Our project of the month is the first family to go solar as part of the Go Solar Seattle Northwest program.  The Kahles decided to go with a 5.5kW Silicon Energy System. They’ve have been following the solar market for several years and recently bought an electric vehicle. For Paul and Vanessa, the timing just seemed perfect to go solar now. As Paul proudly says, “I’m putting as many watts on my…
