earth day

That’s right, every day is Earth Day at Puget Sound Solar, but it’s hard to feel like that when it is dark, and 45 degrees, and raining in December, so we’re OK with corralling all the good vibes and unleashing them when the sun is making some serious headway.  April and May are the months that produce the highest spikes in energy production from PV systems in the Seattle area, and that goes for solar consciousness, too, so let the festivities commence.  April 22, 2015 is, after all, the 45th Anniversary of Earth Day.

To see what area architects are up to you may want to attend the AIA 2015 Earth Day Sustainability Slam , April 22nd at 1400 Western Ave., Seattle 98111 from 5:30-7:30 pm.  This event is brought to you by the AIA Committee On The Environment.

Or you might want to celebrate Earth Week at Latona Pub, where a series of beers are served that were transported to the pub without the use of motorized conveyance.

Not to be missed is the Northwest Green Home Tour, April 25th & 26th.  This is your chance to see all the things we have done at our 107-year-old net-zero-energy PSS headquarters, 5308 Baker Ave NW, 98107, along with many other fine examples of homes that are good for the planet.

If you are looking for ways to make your business greener, there is Go Green 15 on April 30th, a conference put on by King County to help you lighten your footprint.
