The Edmonds Community Solar Cooperative Wednesday completed installation of a larger 18.9-kilowatt system on the Frances Anderson Center roof. It is the second system the cooperative has placed on the roof through an agreement with the City of Edmonds; in August 2011, it installed its first 4.2- kilowatt system there.

The first citizen-owned community solar cooperative in Washington state, the Edmonds Community Solar Cooperative was formed under a partnership between Sustainable Edmonds, a volunteer civic group, and solar project developer Tangerine Power.

The city is leasing roof space to the solar cooperative and will buy electricity from the project at discounted rates until 2020.
