The July 2 Solar Washington General Meeting was held at the Phinney Center's Community Hall and opened the floor to guests who were invited to speak on any topic relating to solar.
Dubbed "2 Cents in 3 Minutes" the meeting featured a variety of topics from homeowners, business owners, and others currently and formerly in the industry.
