Solarize Thurston

PSCCU is proud to be partnering with Olympia Community Solar to offer financing for their Solarize Thurston campaign.
 

 

Solarize is a group purchasing model used throughout the country to reduce costs and simplify the solar installation process. Combining demand saves local solar installers time and energy, and allows them to purchase equipment in bulk — saving you money. Limited time reduced financing rates have been negotiated through a partnership with PSCCU. By participating in the program, you will also be contributing to low-income solar access — for every 50 kilowatts installed we’ll donate solar capacity to low-income families.

Solar is more affordable and effective than ever before!

And with a PSCCU Solar Loan you can reduce your carbon footprint and reduce your utility bills year round. By participating in this program, you can get help with your solar financing needs as well as any other energy-efficiency projects, with loans up to $50,000*.

As Washington’s Green Credit Union our Solar Loan programs (to date) have helped over 7,100 homeowners become solar citizens, created living wage jobs and these solar projects will generate 17,000 Megawatts of electricity over their lifetime in addition to sequestering the same amount of carbon as 13,843 acres of forest per year!
