Washington deserves a clear and stable solar policy

In 2006, Washington created the Renewable Energy Cost Recovery Incentive Payment Program to help build a local solar manufacturing sector and to enable residents to put solar power to work on homes, commercial buildings, and community facilities.

In 2016, the legislature failed to renew the solar program, and now clean energy is in danger without your support. It’s time to update Washington’s solar policy by passing the Solar Jobs Bill: HB 1048/SB 5499/SB 5939.

Know your numbers about the Solar Jobs Bill. Call your legislator and share your favorite statistic:

 

3,700 jobs preserved in the solar industry

2,875 jobs on deck to be created

13,000 solar home/business-owners protected with clear policies

115 megawatts of solar to be installed in 3 years

5x more solar per dollar as the state’s current solar program

Solar power is great for our environment, energy independence, and creates thriving jobs all over our state.

Solar for health & environment

Solar is a key solution to climate change, replacing polluting sources of electricity to power homes, businesses, and a growing use of electric cars, buses, and trains.

Solar for energy independence

While the Pacific Northwest has enjoyed inexpensive hydropower for many decades, the price of depending on hydro – in dollars, pollution, and security – is growing.

Solar for thriving local jobs

Washington is home to 128 small businesses that manufacture or install solar components. Collectively, they support 3,700 jobs in our state.
