What does an annual company sponsorship to Solar Washington entail?
Solar Washington has been one of the most important advocates for solar energy in the Pacific Northwest for many years. We’ve worked on everything from pioneering Washington State’s innovative incentive programs to providing ongoing public education around the state. Your company can sponsor Solar Washington on an annual basis as a way to show your support and associate your company's name with the organization and the solar community in Washington. Support from our annual sponsors helps fund the events and programs that educate Washingtonians about solar, its uses and its benefits. Click to read more about our recent accomplishments.
Solar Washington's company sponsors include utilities, installers, manufacturers, distributors, financial institutions and other companies and organizations who share Solar Washington's mission and commitment to solar education in communities throughout Washington and who conduct their business practices with integrity and according to best industry practices.
Solar Washington participated in the 2017 YMCA Earth Service Corps Environmental Symposium (pictured left). Here's feedback from staff, volunteers and participants:
"Many youth commented that they learned a lot (from Solar Washington), loved that your presentation was interactive and highlighted it as the workshop from which they learned the most. A handful of evaluations also specifically highlighted that they felt hopeful after Solar Washington's workshop. Our staff and volunteers also commented on the high quality and engaging nature of your workshop. It was highlighted as one of the best by all groups!"
