Our friend, Mr. Sun: The source of seasons, days, light, and warmth.”

Sol, our sun. Our daily source of free energy, ready to be harnessed. Our little bungalow has 21 made-in-Washington solar panels composing a 5.775 kw photovoltaic system. We’re generating sustainable power for the Tacoma Public Utilities grid. And getting paid for it. Using equipment built by workers in our own state. Maybe one small drop in a very large bucket. But solutions are often just that: many small steps in the right direction.
