Solar and Clean Energy.

SPREADING THE WORD.


Solar isn’t just a business for Artisan. We see our work as an opportunity to educate, connect and inspire. We’re on a mission to show families, businesses and communities throughout the Puget Sound just how beautifully solar energy can fit their budgets, goals, and lifestyles.

Many people don’t know that Washington is an ideal place to go solar, both in terms of our climate and our state’s generous incentive program. Through outreach, Artisan works to break down the two biggest barriers to solar energy in Washington State: education and cost.

To find out more, be sure to join us at one of our upcoming workshops or events. Or contact us to schedule an event in your community or place of busines

WE’LL BRING THE POWER TO YOU.


Although we’re already active in local education, we strive to reach further into Puget Sound communities each year. In addition to our participation in the Northwest solar movement through various partner campaigns, we also conduct our own events. And if it’s not convenient for you to attend an existing event, we can bring a presentation to you!

Artisan Vice President Evan Leonard is available to speak at many types of events about solar, climate, the environment, and our energy future. Evan has conducted close to one hundred workshops for home and small business owners. Known as an entertaining and engaging speaker, he excels in relaying the complexities of solar into comprehensible and fun presentations.

A custom presentation we call “Solar Power Lunch Hour” has proven popular with companies who want to learn more about solar. If your place of work, business, organizations or community might be interested in such a presentation—either for company leadership or all employees/members—let us know. We’d love to meet you.
