Impact from our work in the community:

In a 4/22/2022 letter to Solar Washington, Karen May wrote:

The legacy of Solar Washington as an organization is its pioneering leadership.  The organization has brought much needed political savvy, engineering/technical expertise and reliable consumer information to the table.  It has pushed for strategically smart, early adapter incentive schemes and found creative ways to fund public solar demonstration programs so that economies of scale could be imagines and eventually be reached.  Thank you, Solar Washington Association, for your obviously long-term commitment to a sustainable future for all of us.

Feedback From YMCA Earth Service Corps Environmental Symposium 2017 staff, volunteers and participants:

EnvSymposium1.jpg"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!"
