The Seattle Public Library will host a Seattle City Light “Green Up” information table from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. on most Wednesdays in November (including November 2, 9, 16 and 30) in the lobby at the Ballard Library (5614 22nd Ave NW).

Chat with City Light representatives about how local renewable energy projects in the Pacific Northwest can support clean energy and a healthy environment. The Green Up program uses renewable energy projects to help promote economic development in rural parts of the region, improve Washington state’s energy security and reduce pollution.

The Green Up program uses renewable energy projects to help promote economic development in rural parts of the region, improve Washington state’s energy security and reduce pollution.

Seattle City Light customers can change their owned or rented home’s energy usage to renewable energy through the Green Up program. Customers can choose to purchase renewable power for 25%, 50% or 100% of their power usage.

Green Up’s renewable energy credits come from regional geothermal, biogas, wind and small hydro energy. Seattle City Light’s basic energy service is currently a mix of hydro, wind, nuclear, coal, landfill gas and other power sources.

    We need to figure out how to harness the kinetic energy of these shiftless, thieving junkies as they orbit around the multi-million $ libraries to use the facilities.

    Maybe we can also get these shopping carts and piles of trash cleaned up before we start preaching about “environmentalism”?

    It’s laughable.
