    Solar In Tacoma workshops presented by Artisan Electric

    Do you have friends, family or coworkers who are solar curious? Artisan Electric is excited to announce a free “SOLAR IN TACOMA” workshop series starting August 20th. If you know someone considering solar in the Tacoma area, this is an excellent place for them to get started and now is the time. All three workshops are at the Tacoma Nature Center. The first workshop is just a few weeks away and you can register at Space is limited so be sure to sign-up soon for the date and time that fits your schedule best.

    In these free workshops we'll discuss:

    • The environmental and economic benefits of going solar.
    • The technology - how it works, connects to your home and the electrical grid.
    • State and Federal incentives for solar.
    • What homes are best for solar.
    • Financial considerations and ROI estimates.

    All workshop participants who go solar will count toward a donated solar PV system for the Tacoma community. For every 10 PV systems installed from these workshops, Artisan Electric will install 1kW of solar to a nonprofit of the customers' choice. The more systems sold, the greater the size of the donated system. Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union, (PSCCU) will be present to discuss low-interest Energy-Smart loans that have helped more than 2,000 Washingtonians install solar PV systems. PSCCU has also generously donated the food and drinks for these events.
