The installation of this 3.92 kW solar photovoltaic system reflects a commitment to renewable energy and sustainable living by the City of Everett and the Snohomish County PUD.
The project reflects the center’s desire to appeal to the baby boomers that are attracted to the many programs that are offered at the center.
The solar modules are visible to downtown Everett traffic and it shows that the center is determined to serve the needs of seniors by offering a method to conserve energy.
The residents are able to share the reports from the kiosk with their children and grandchildren and help the older members stay in touch with today’s technology.
