West Seattle biznote: Swedish Automotive adds solar power

Almost three years ago, when we toured the then-newly built facility that Swedish Automotive (WSB sponsor) was about to move into, we reported on its environmentally friendly features – including the potential for adding solar-power system in the future. Now, that future is here, with a 9.6-kilowatt system being installed – Swedish Automotive shared the photo with that news, and, as noted in a detailed report on their website, with the hope of more to come. See more photos in this album linked from the Swedish Facebook page.

    I can’t believe that some people think solar panels are ugly. I can’t wait to see them on EVERY well-situated rooftop making use of that space to tap an energy source that NO ONE can ever embargo or interfere with – well, except maybe one “person” :)

    Way to go Swedish! We love solar panels and hope more and more people begin to use them!

      GH – it’s actually a myth that you need lots of sunshine for solar power to work, I have been told time and time again (and there’s supporting evidence out there too). – TR

    The water pump at Middle Fork campground is solar powered. Works fine despite being in the shade most of the day.

Sorry, comment time is over.
