Business and property owners: Share your thoughts on solar

The cost of installing a solar energy system is now lower than ever. Although seen as a cloudy state, Washington has great solar potential. With rising electricity bills and state incentives available, the business case for solar makes sense right now.

Organizations around Seattle are partnering to create more options for local businesses to invest in solar energy and want to hear from you! We are seeking input from Seattle commercial property and business owners to help guide future commercial solar energy programs.

Please complete this 5-minute survey by March 12, 2015 and be entered to win one of two $25 dollar gift cards to Cherry Street Coffee. All responses will be used only for these purposes, and will remain confidential. We greatly appreciate your time and input.

The survey is being conducted by the Office of Economic Development, Craft3, NW SEED, SODO BIA, Seattle City Light, and the Office of Sustainability and Environment.
