Do you care about the planet we’re leaving behind for future generations and more importantly, do YOU want to help solve climate change? If so, please come to our FREE solar workshop on Tuesday, November 14th at 6PM at the Vashon-Maury Island Land Trust Building and learn how solar photovoltaics (PV) can reduce your carbon footprint at home or at work. You’ll leave the session feeling empowered about what you can do as an individual to help save the planet.
By installing an 8 kilowatt, (8,000 watt) solar PV system, EVERY YEAR you can have the following immediate impact on the planet by offsetting:
5,999 pounds of coal burned
13 barrels of oil consumed
13,474 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle
Artisan Electric, your Vashon-based local electrical contractor has installed more than 800 solar PV systems and we’re hosting a series of FREE solar workshops so you can learn how solar benefits the planet and if solar is right for you.
In the workshop you’ll learn about the environmental, technical and financial aspects of Solar On Vashon. While listening to the presentation, enjoy some FREE craft beer, soda and pizza, compliments of Puget Sound Cooperative Credit Union.
