OPALCO to Host Solar Town Hall Sep­tem­ber 20th 

Last chance to enter raf­fle 

OPALCO’s series of Island Way work­shops con­cludes with a Solar Town Hall via Zoom on Sep­tem­ber 20th at 5:00pm. The Solar Town Hall will give an update on the next com­mu­ni­ty solar project – the Bail­er Hill Micro­grid on San Juan Island, dis­cuss rooftop solar and bat­tery stor­age options and get mem­ber feed­back on the Board’s cur­rent dis­cus­sion on adjust­ing solar rates. To attend, mem­bers reg­is­ter on OPALCO’s home­page: www.opalco.com. 

This work­shop is the last chance to be entered in the Island Way raf­fle!  OPALCO is raf­fling off a Green­works elec­tric lawn­mow­er and ten shares of the next Com­mu­ni­ty Solar Project – and a Green­works elec­tric blow­er. The win­ning names will be drawn on Octo­ber 1st via Face­book Live (tune in at @orcaspower)

OPALCO’s Island Way cam­paign is here to help co-op mem­bers pre­pare for the ener­gy future that is com­ing FAST. The cli­mate emer­gency and Wash­ing­ton Clean Ener­gy Trans­for­ma­tion Act (CETA) are dri­ving a tran­si­tion away from fos­sil fuels. OPALCO has a plan to build micro­grids through­out the islands for local ener­gy resilien­cy and to explore renew­able gen­er­a­tion options on the main­land that offer mem­bers afford­abil­i­ty and reli­a­bil­i­ty. OPALCO has tools, rebates and resources to help mem­bers make wise use of electricity.
