Seattle Solar U is a free solar educational workshop hosted by Sunergy Systems in Ballard.
Solar stands with other renewables as a more viable and longterm alternative to the use of fossil fuels. There are many ways to combat climate change and solar is one of them! But many questions persist:
* How well does solar work in the Northwest?
* Are solar panels affordable for my family?
* What solar financing options are available?
* What solar incentives and rebates may I be eligible for?

Eclectic, artsy, earthy, urban and committed to a better future...you'll find all this and more at the 13th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival. When you join this group of Ballard neighbors on Aug 27th at Ballard Commons Park, you'll encounter creativity, passion and community while learning about daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living. In a time of uncertainty about our nation's leadership, People Power has been chosen as this year's festival theme as a reminder of what is still possible locally and as a model for all communities.
Research scientist Jeff Cordell will speak about his work with the Elliott Bay Seawall Project to create a design that supports habitat and salmon migration. Mr. Cordell was recently honored by the Seattle Aquarium for his role in the long-term research to design, install, and monitor large-scale test panels along the Seattle waterfront. Seattle is the first city in the world to incorporate habitat panels into a large portion of its seawall.
