Puget Sound Energy (PSE) has partnered with the Issaquah School District to install its third Community Solar site, allowing PSE customers in east King County to subscribe to renewable energy.
Community Solar is a voluntary renewable energy program that allows customers to subscribe to 100% local solar energy. PSE has partnered with communities and organizations across its service area to build multiple new, local solar energy installations for the program.
This installation at Pine Lake Middle School features 480 solar panels and provides 175 kilowatts of AC power, enabling subscribers to share the benefits of solar without the need to install or maintain their own rooftop solar array.
The Community Solar program launched in 2021 with two other sites located within its service area; one in Kittitas County near Ellensburg and the other at Olympia High School, with more sites to come.
The solar installation contributes to the Issaquah School District’s mission of encouraging students to be stewards of the environment while providing opportunities for further education about the benefits of renewable energy.
