EcoDistrict Update – February
SPRING IS IN THE AIR! And with the sunshine comes new growth and possibilities! Check out our updates below to learn about the exciting projects that we’re working on and see how you can take action to promote neighborhood sustainability. Thank you for your ongoing interest and support.Spring Comes to the Pollinator Pathway Last weekend, on a beautiful sunny Saturday we walked along Columbia Street on Sarah Bergmann’s interdisciplinary design project, the Pollinator Pathway, knocking on doors and talking to neighbors to invite their participation in the project. Learn more and get involved!
TAKE ACTION: Less than 250 units of Community Solar left! We are ¾ of the way there and NOW is your chance to go #CommunitySolar. The array on the Holiday Apartments has generated over 2400 kWh since it went live in late November (that’s the CO2 equivalent of over 43 trees)!
Shout out to our new Solar Sponsors!
We’d like to give a big THANK YOU to Rhein Haus, Capitol Cider, Rainbow Natural Remedies and Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream for investing in Community Solar and directly supporting neighborhood sustainability and affordability! Learn more.
TAKE ACTION: Join the Capitol Hill 2030 District! The Capitol Hill EcoDistrict has partnered with the Seattle 2030 District to support property owners and managers in improving the performance of buildings on Capitol Hill.
