Community Solar Projects: The Breakdown of SB 6658
On March 25, 2010. Washington State'Governor signed Senate Bill 6658 into law which expands opportunities for community solar energy projects in Washington. This bill gives greater flexibility to project organizers by allowing them to form LLCs to receive incentive payments. Each participant of an LLC can receive up to $5,000 per year until 2020 for electric power from solar generation that is sold to a local utility. The program requires each eligible project of up to 75KW to be located in the State. Read More Here from the Senate Democrats State of WA Blog

HOW DOES SOLAR WORK?
Solar Power provides electrical generation by means of heat engines or photovoltaics. Once converted, its uses are limited only by human innovation. Solar technologies are characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way the capture, convert, and distribute sunlight.
Active Solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors (with electrical or mechanical equipment) to convert sunlight into useful outputs. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or light dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air.
Possible Solar Applications Include:
-Space Heating & Cooling
-Hot Water Systems
-Thermal Energy for Cooking
-High Temperature Process Heat for Industrial Purposes
