A Port Townsend solar installation company, Power Trip Energy Corp., has announced a group solar purchasing program available to Clallam PUD customers located east of Port Angeles. The program, called Solarize Sequim, includes $300-$700 per kilowatt cash rebates for participants.

An orientation for Solarize Sequim will be from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, July 30, at the McComb Gardens Educational Center, 751 McComb Road. Following the workshop, a walking tour will be offered of nearby grid-tied solar photovoltaic systems. The entire event is free and open to the public.

Grid-tied photovoltaic systems generate electricity from sunlight. This power is used on-site by the system owner and excess electricity is fed back to the utility, which results in lower monthly power bills. Federal tax credits and annual production incentive payments also are available.

"Last year most of our solar PV installations occurred in the Sequim area. I expect the response to Solarize Sequim will be strong," said Jeff Randall with Power Trip Energy Corp. "Using group purchasing we save money on equipment and by focusing on one geographic area we install more solar systems than we normally would. We custom design each solar array for each home and allow our customers to choose the type of solar equipment they prefer. We don't limit our Solarize participants to one product line."
