Residential Renewables: a Workshop for Puget Sound Area Residents

The Five Things You Should Know About Adding Solar and Wind to Your Home

Are you interested in using renewable energy in your home? Northwest SEED is pleased to offer a workshop for Puget Sound Area residents that will tell you what you need to know before investing in a residential renewable energy system:

* How do you go about evaluating your renewable energy resource?
* What is the best-fit technology for your renewable energy resource?
* What does it take to invest in a renewable energy system and what incentives are available?
* How can you work with your utility to set up your renewable energy system?
* What high priority conservation opportunities are available to you?

This workshop is designed for people who have an interest in small-scale wind and solar systems for their home or business. Workshop participants will gain a basic understanding of energy generation, components of a renewable energy system, solar and wind technology, financial incentives, utility interconnection and more. The workshop will also address common myths and concerns surrounding the installation of solar and wind projects in urban environments. Workshop attendees will come away with the knowledge and tools they need to evaluate renewable energy options and make informed renewable energy implementation decisions.
