SolTerra, a leading solar installer in Western Washington, is donating a 24-panel solar energy system to a deserving community member. To be selected for the free solar energy - create an original rap song!

“Many people and organizations want to offset their carbon emissions by switching to solar power, so SolTerra is stepping up to help,” says Brian Heather, President of SolTerra. “As a Pacific Northwest company, the future of our environment and our communities are important to us, and we want to try to help make solar available for everyone,” Heather added.

SolTerra is based in Seattle and has been designing and installing solar electrical systems, living walls and green roofs since 2008. In addition, the company designs and builds sustainable, mixed-use, LEED Platinum apartments in the Pacific Northwest. SolTerra wants to demonstrate that sustainable living is within reach for everyone.

Here’s how the giveaway works. A deserving community member, either a non-profit or a family, just needs to create a Rap for Solar video (less than 1-minute) about why they deserve a solar energy system. Send the video or a link, with their name, organization and address to rapforsolar(at)solterra.com by Tuesday, May 31st. We’ll post the finalists on social media for fans to vote for their favorite. We’ll install the new solar energy system this summer!
