Tukwilla's New Solar Hot Spot
Valley View Sewer District recently completed installation of a 9.6 kW (40 panel) solar energy system on its new maintenance garage located at 14816 Military Road South inside the City of Tukwila. An additional 32.4 kW (120 panel) solar energy system was cooperatively installed by the sewer district and the water district at their joint administration building located at 3460 S 148th St, also in Tukwila. The 32.4 kW system is in addition to a 1kW (6 panel) system installed in 2006 during construction of the joint administration building. The combined 43 kW system is the largest solar energy system in the Seattle City Light service area south of the City of Seattle. The two newest systems, designed and installed by Sunergy Systems, will produce enough electricity each year to offset the electricity used by four typical single family residences.
