Friday is deadline to buy in to latest Edmonds Community Solar Cooperative project

Members of the Edmonds Community Solar Cooperative received checks last Friday -- a rebate to cooperative members for their investment in the system.

The Edmonds Community Solar Cooperative is now gearing up for installation of its Phase 2 solar system on the Frances Anderson Center roof in late spring. Any Washington state resident can buy shares of the co-op, called SunSlices, and Friday, May 4 is the last day to get them.

Anyone interested in the Edmonds solar co-op can visit the website or Facebook page.

  1. How much electricity has the system actually produced? How much has the City of Edmonds saved to date? When did this become open to anyone in the State rather than just folks locally? How much (without the federal subsides) has the electricity actually cost?

  2. This program is a great start; Edmonds, I am proud of you!

    In Arizona for a few days last week, I saw thousands upon thousands of homes, RVs, trailer homes, condos, businesses, and government buildings with NO SOLAR PANELS on practically all of them — only an occasional one.

    If the State of Arizona, the electric/water utilities, and politicians want to help save their state and the planet, they will initiate programs like this and the OREP (Oregon Renewable Energy Program) to help individual residents and businesses install solar arrays. They could also raise rates so high that people would be motivated to use clotheslines instead of electric or gas-power clothes dryers. The enormous hydro dams would not be needed if every home had its own source of energy … and they could if they really wanted to do it.
