Sun Path is Open For Business

Sun Path is Open For Business

On March 22nd, Sun Path Electric decided for the safety of our employees, clients and community in general, to shut our operations. Although solar was considered essential, we felt it best to do our part to "flatten the curve" and lower the number of infected people in Washington state. Honestly, as important as grid-tied solar is, we did not see it as essential.

After two months sheltering in place, we are slowly re-opening and will be following all CDC guidelines on all job sites. The safety of our staff and clients is always our number one concern. All employees will be practicing social distancing both on and off the job site. We are returning to work slowing and with great care.

Here are a few details:

PPE

- Gloves: Crew members will wear gloves at all times while on site.

- Eye Protection: Crew members will wear eye protection at all times while on site.

- Face Masks: Crew members will weak face masks at all times while on site.

- Handwashing: All staff will follow CDC guidelines for handwashing and will have handwashing ability (outside of your home) on site.

- Cleaning and disinfecting work stations: All workstations will be cleaned and disinfected at the start and end of each day.

Solar Systems

Solar system installations mainly happen outside on your roof and mounting equipment on the side of the home. Our electricians will need to enter your home to access your electric panel, which is usually located in the garage or electric room. When entering home, all staff will adhere to CDC guidelines.

Remote Site Surveys

Our sales and design team specialists will provide remote preliminary consultation and solar quotes. This includes an overview phone meeting, emailed educational materials on going solar in Washington,  a solar system designed through advanced mapping technology and information provided from our customers. After the initial consultation, upon customer approval, and in-person meeting and site evaluation is scheduled to make sure the home and roof are as indicated on satellite imagery. Our solar consultant will wear PPE and follow social distancing suggested by the CDC.

As Always, We Are Here For You!

Now, more than ever, small, socially-minded businesses, such as Sun Path Electric, need community support. Over the last two years, we have installed hundreds of solar systems, donated thousands of dollars to local climate groups, and provided hundreds of hours of community education on solar and climate change. Our consistent 5 star reviews, across all platforms, speak for themselves. We are here for you in good times and in less-than-good times. We continue to move solar and climate education forward with love, honesty and quality workmanship.

From Climate Activist to Seattle Solar Installer

From Climate Activist to Seattle Solar Installer

We are so excited to announce that 19-year old climate activist and innovator, Aji Piper, has joined the Sun Path Electric family as a Solar Apprentice. His climate advocacy began when he moved to Seattle just under a decade ago and became involved with a local arm of the international youth movement, Plant for the Planet and their Three point plan to reduce the impacts of climate change: Plant Trees, Leave Oil in the Ground and Fight for Social Justice. 
Solar Power - Increases Home Value

Solar Power - Increases Home Value

Solar in Seattle has many benefits. Your home uses less energy from the utility because you are replacing that energy with solar energy. This saves money on your energy bill and protects our environment by reducing the home’s carbon footprint. All this good stuff has led many Seattle area home owners to invest in solar. But, what many people have not yet caught on to is that solar panels also increase the value of your home.
