Public Utility Community Solar....

Puget Sound Solar installed 75 kW of solar PV for Mason County's first local shared solar project located at Mason PUD 3's Johns Prairie offices at Shelton.  PUD 3 customers have shown a great deal of interest in solar energy projects. However, there are those for one or more reasons who can't take advantage of solar energy at their homes:
With PUD 3's shared solar program, customers purchased solar units in the system. Each unit cost $100 (maximum 100 units per customer), with 2,893 available units.   The investment will pay itself off quickly (estimated between three and four years) in two ways:
An annual credit on a customer's electric bill based on the electricity generated by their share of the project. An annual Washington State production incentive through 2020.
