Friday Harbor OPALCO office open during construction

The Friday Harbor OPALCO office is undergoing a construction remodel to make improvements to the public entrance and front offices.

The member services office is temporarily located to the right of the usual entrance at the back of the parking lot in a modular building. The temporary office will be open normal hours: Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Signage will direct you to parking in front of the modular building during construction.

Construction is expected to be complete by September.
