The Frances Anderson Center Solar Project ("Project") is a project of Edmonds Community Solar Cooperative. The purpose of the Program is to:
Provide discounted electricity to the Frances Anderson Community Center thru 6/30/2020, and potentially for many more years if the City of Edmonds desires.
Provide a way for the community surrounding the Community Center to support the transition to clean energy.
Educate the Edmonds community about solar energy.
Earn State of Washington Solar Production Incentives, and provide cash rewards up to the Wireless Solar Panel buyer's original purchase amount.
Provide the Co-Op with the potential ability to direct future local clean energy benefits out of surplus funds at the end of the contract period.
How the program works
Members directly support the installation of solar panels at Frances Anderson Community Center with their dollars. Members of the Program are entitled to the following benefits:
Your name promoted with the solar array you are supporting.
The ability to track the energy production of the solar power system you're supporting.
Annual rewards - each year for the entire membership period, the Program will provide each member cash rewards for each Wireless Solar Panel™ you own, supported by green energy production made possible by your purchase. (e.g. A Member buys a Cooperative Membership for $25 and a Wireless Solar Paneltm for $1,000 and receives $1,000 back - PLUS they own part of solar power system in their community. Member rewards are paid annually now thru 2020, funded by sale of power to City of Edmonds and by available incentives.)
Anyone may join the Co-op but only cooperative members living in the state of Washington may purchase Wireless Solar Panels™, and be eligible for all the incentives available. A member of the Cooperative may be an individual, a group of individuals, or an entity, such as a corporation or nonprofit organization.
