Does Solar Work in the PNW?
Absolutely! While the Pacific Northwest may have shorter hours of daylight and cloudier weather in the winter, there are several advantages to solar energy in Washington:
- Solar panels perform more efficiently in cooler climates and our long, sunny summer days are ideal for solar production
- WA state also has some of the best solar incentives in the country. Through net metering, solar owners can build credits with their utility in the summer when they produce more energy than they need to use in the winter to offset lower output
