On April 8th Kirkland Mayor Amy Walen joined us to celebrate the completion of our brand new 6.72 kW solar system. Half of the system was donated by Northwest Electric & Solar, the contractor for the Solarize Kirkland campaign, as a way to thank the community for supporting a successful campaign to increase the use of solar energy in Kirkland.
“It’s been great to work with the community of
Kirkland to bring the Solarize Kirkland campaign to my hometown,” said Derek White, President and CEO of Northwest Electric & Solar. “This is just a small token of our gratitude for the support the
community has given us and we are happy to make a difference for such a worthy nonprofit organization.”
Friends of Youth invested an additional amount to double the size of the solar array.
Our new solar panels create a renewable energy source for our administration building, shrinking our carbon footprint and allowing us invest the savings on our electric bill in the children, youth, and families
