Founding members of the Edmonds Community Solar Cooperative were on hand Tuesday as solar panels were installed on the Frances Anderson Center roof. It’s the first community-owned solar cooperative in Washington state, and will operate a 75-kilowatt solar power installation at the Frances Anderson Center, which is owned by the City of Edmonds. The cooperative finished the first round of its membership drive in July and soon will be open to members for the second phase of installation.

  1. Thanks Joy,
    It feels mighty good to see those solar panels up on the roof finally. Phase 2 sales are open and we have plans to go big with this next installation. We’ll have a public workshop this fall to explain our plans.
