As our State Legislature completes their work on the budget this weekend, we are holding out hope for a continued solar incentive program that will cost less but still be attractive.

The route has been long and tortuous, and we still don't know if we will have a positive result, but legislator/stakeholder activity on refining SHB 1912 has continued up to this moment.  This morning, at a Pride Brunch hosted by the 43rd District Democrats, there were three state senators in the room and we managed to buttonhole two of them before they left for the capitol.

If you haven't already, contact your state legislators to let them know that you support continued solar incentives.  There is a negative campaign going on courtesy of The Alliance for Solar City that is not factual, so feel free to ignore it.

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.
