Tuesday May 1, 2012 <May Day Solar Day>
In conjunction with Ray Schultens Motors, who will be bringing a Nissan Leaf to demo, and Pedal In Power Out, who will be demo’ing their electric bikes, Hire Electric will be hosting a “Solarize White Salmon” meeting at the White Salmon United Methodist Church on 341 N. Main Street in White Salmon, Washington.
Open house with munchies, cars, solar panels, charging stations and bikes on display (the munchies are for more than display actually) will be in the church parking lot from 4pm to 6pm. A presentation on the benefits of going solar in Washington (and Oregon for those brave enough to cross the bridge) will be from 6:30 to when the questions are over in the church hall.
Sharon Ohnstead from KPUD energy services will be on hand with Net Metering and state incentive information.
We will be discussing:
- The Washington solar incentive
- Community solar options
- Neighborhood & White Salmon group buying discounts
– Solarize White Salmon!
- Hire Electric’s Referral Program – GreenYou$elf
- KPUD’s awesome Net Metering policy
- Solar’s remarkable price point
- Washington made solar equipment
- Electric vehicles and solar
- EV charging
The event is free and everyone’s welcome. Please RSVP here so we can have enough munchies. Or you can call our office for more info 541-296-5574.
