Washington Incentives

In 2005, the State of Washington enacted progressive solar legislation to promote the development of a local solar industry, local jobs, and clean, renewable power generation. The largest incentives are for solar arrays built in Washington state, such as Silicon Energy (which is a high quality system recommended and installed by Shoreline Electric.)
