Just start a solar garden already!

I'm a renter. Always have been.
I support solar power. Always have.
Those two statements are NOT in conflict.

Locally generated and distributed electricity reduces the amount of power that must be generated in the first place, since long transmission lines lose power as heat.
For a proposed Xcel Energy solar installation in Colorado's San Luis Valley, about 15 percent of the electricity would be lost in transmission.
So park PV panels close by, on roofs, as parking structures, in odd corners of industrial lots.
Gang up on utility bills and form a solar garden. You and nine people can literally change the world by changing your power source.
And profit is standing in the wings, not yet ready for her closeup, but ready to bring home green in two ways.
Talk to the folks at The Solar Gardens Institute.
