Shared Solar Is A Bright Idea

For years I’ve thought that the time would come when I would be able to add solar panels to the roof of my house. With each passing year, I assume that the process will become less complicated, cheaper, and more user friendly. In many ways, the idea of solar energy is getting easier to grasp as time goes by. But still, every time that I think about pulling the trigger something happens to make me rethink my green path. Maybe wind is the answer? Maybe the next best solar device is right around the corner?

KzwbBE0OFlMCurrently, The Vote Solar Initiative is pushing for a program that’s time has come. It’s called Shared Solar, and it works like this… Say you rent, or your roof is not conducive to panels, or you can’t afford an installation, or you’re worried about upkeep and maintenance costs. If that is the case, then you won’t have to worry about any of those issues with Shared Solar. We’re talking no headaches, cost savings, clean energy and bundled services.

Take a look at the lead image. If the Shared Solar initiative moves forward, your own solar panel could be somewhere else completely, working in tandem with other solar panels owned by other people and businesses. It’s a revolutionary idea, and one that needs our consideration.

At this time, Vote Solar is looking for residents of New York State to cast their online vote in support of Shared Solar, to bring the Shared Clean Energy Bill to reality. Click here to show your support. By filling out your info, a support letter will be generated to the key politicians. at this point there are only 2500 more votes needed in order to reach the 10,000 vote mark.

Let’s go solar Buffalo!
