Haborview's solar array is largest of any Washington hospital

December 5, 2017

Rooftop panels will offset facility's energy needs and provide backup power.

Harborview Medical Center, a UW Medicine entity, is in the final phase of installing an almost 100-kilowatt solar array, the largest such system among Washington state hospitals.

"This solar project will help us meet our carbon-reduction goals, create redundant power for the West Hospital in case of an emergency, and demonstrate the feasibility of solar power on health care facilities," said Pam Jorgensen, its assistant administrator of facilities and engineering.
