Connecting face to face

Northwest Electric and Solar operated booth #608 and conducted two presentations throughout the nine-day show. Our booth drew homeowners that wanted to learn more about solar and others that wanted to discuss the latest and greatest in the industry.

After two years of Washington homeowners left to find inspiration online, we were all able to enjoy the in-person event through presentations, booth visits, and engaging conversations!

The Smart Home that works for you

We discussed flexible storage systems available through our SPAN and Battery Backup services. They are allowing homeowners to maximize the use of the battery storage! SPAN panels learn how you use electricity and give you a time estimate of how long your battery will last you. The last piece of the puzzle is solar panels; with that, you will have the means to control the use, generation, and storage of your electricity!

The Future of Roof-top Solar

Our sample of the Tesla Solar Roof drew lots of attention. It intrigued homeowners involved in new construction or planning to re-roof in the next few years. The difference between inactive and active solar tiles was a highlight given that there is very little to discern, less so if you were to look at the tiles from the street!

The power to save

Discussing the benefits of Net Metering reassured homeowners that even with our cloudy and perceived sub-optimal weather for solar. We are still able to save money throughout the year. With summer production doubling in winter, Washington homeowners have a lot to gain from roof-top solar. The excess credits generated in the summer will accrue for use in the winter and save you money on electricity.

Solar for your lifestyle

Our small farm & garden presentation covered small and large-scale solar applications for your home and garden. Show-goers learned about how solar works and the equipment needed for projects to pump water, energize a heating element, and power lights at night! Adding solar PV to your home is a bit more complicated, which is why you should work with solar installers like NWES. We work with you throughout each step to ensure the system fits your needs and exceeds expectations. 

Building a greener community

Overall, we are all thankful to have participated in the Seattle Home and Garden Show. Thank you to those who came up and asked questions; we enjoyed informing show-goers about the benefits of smart home improvements, like solar, battery storage, and SPAN. A great way to kick off a year where we can expect to have more in-person events. We are excited to continue to build on our connections in Washington!
