Seattle City Light Solar Powered Summer Attractions

Sonic Bloom at Seattle Center

It takes great power to make the Seattle area as amazing as it is. Fueled by people, technology, renewable energy, and carbon-neutral electricity, Seattle City Light is driven by you, and together we power some pretty remarkable things. Here’s a list of amazing solar-powered attractions to visit this summer.

  • Sonic Bloom @ Seattle Center – Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind, interactive, and solar-powered art installation outside the Pacific Science Center.
  • Woodland Park Zoo – Be sure to ride on the solar-powered carousel and view the solar panels on the top of the food pavilion!
  • Jefferson Park – Gather under picnic shelters with roofs made from solar panels or splash around in the solar-powered spray park!
  • Seattle Aquarium – After exploring the aquarium, stand on the deck outside to see the solar installation on the top of the roof.
  • White Center Community Center and Steve Cox Memorial Park– This Green Up supported solar installation helps the organization reduce their operating costs so they can dedicate more of their budget to community services and activities. The park offers baseball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, play and picnic areas, and a foot reflexology walking path.

City Light customers already receive about 90% carbon-free electricity. We track and offset any remaining carbon from our fuel mix and operations, meaning City Light and the electricity you use every day have a net-zero impact. The Pacific Northwest region, however, continues to rely on fossil fuels for much of its energy and our Green Up program gives you the opportunity to support the growth of renewable energy in our region and right here in our community.

Green Up is a low-cost and voluntary renewable energy program that allows you to support Pacific Northwest wind, solar, and other renewable energy projects generating carbon-free energy. When you participate in Green Up, we purchase regional renewable energy credits (RECs) on your behalf and fund local rooftop solar projects hosted by not-for-profits and public organizations like affordable housing, schools, and parks.
