Clean, Renewable Energy at Warm Beach Camp

11986970 10153544225733119 5969414245536615790 nWarm Beach Camp and Conference Center welcomes the New Year with a brand new solar power system on the flagship building, Cedar Lodge. This solar system quietly generates clean electricity through a 9.6 kilowatt solar photovoltaic (PV) system mounted on the southwest-facing Cedar Lodge roof. This system connects to the Snohomish County PUD power grid. Electricity generation from the system reduces the energy Warm Beach Camp purchases from PUD. This connection also allows the Camp to feed power back into the grid if the solar panels were to produce more than Warm Beach Camp demands.

“We are thrilled with the community partnership between the Camp, PUD, and Arlington Electric. This solar project will be a showcase of clean energy stewardship for the thousands of guests who attend events at Warm Beach Camp. A TV monitor inside Cedar Lodge displays a graph of energy production in real time. This allows guests to see the difference this project is making and we hope it stimulates a vision for what we all can do to live more sustainably,”says Patrick Patterson, Warm Beach Camp General Manager.

The solar power system was provided through a grant from Snohomish County PUD’s Planet Power program. Installation was completed by Arlington Electric & Solar Company. Visitors are welcome to see the project first hand. For more information on Planet Power, visit www.snopud.com.

Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
