solar home
This year the Northwest Green Home Tour, May 4th and 5th, 11am - 5 pm, has a number of cool sites in Seattle, and our home is on the tour again so we can share what we know about creating a net-zero home from a 100-year-old Seattle house.  We also have rain water catchment, city chickens, composting, edible landscaping, and reclaimed building material usage, as well as solar hot water, solar electric, battery storage, EV charging and air-to-water heat pump space heating.
Plan on touring the other homes in the north end, there is lots to see.  See you there!

About the author


Started Puget Sound Solar in 2001 with 30 years of construction contracting experience, and a desire to turn Seattle on to solar energy. Achieving NABCEP certification in 2004, Jeremy believes that our customers often follow a path similar to the one he took, starting out with solar daydreaming, then progressing to education on the subject, and eventually leading to action. In addition to leading the company he also does some teaching and speaking engagements about various aspects of solar energy, and experiments relentlessly with various solar, energy efficiency, and electric vehicle projects.
