It’s been a busy few weeks – We moved our office to 12th Avenue Arts, launched a community solar program (more below), and unveiled this website!

Monthly updates are new, too. Our mini-dispatches will feature the latest news from the EcoDistrict. We promise to keep it short – with important info and clear invitations to action.

Let us know what you think!  If you like what you see, please share with your friends and colleagues. If you have suggestions on content you’d like to see here, send them our way.

Community Solar is Launched

Our biggest news is the official launch of Capitol Hill Community Solar, a collaborative venture with Seattle City Light. You may have heard about it in the Seattle Weekly or Capitol Hill Seattle blog. You can “buy in” to the program for as little as $150 spread across your next two electric bills. The more solar units you buy, the more you’ll benefit affordable housing, local jobs and the growing clean energy sector AND the more you stand to save on your electric bill.
