Solar is a unique win-win – every dollar saved thanks to solar is re-invested in the local economy rather than exported to a big fossil fuel company. We currently export millions of dollars from our local economy each year on energy, imagine what an impact it would make if that money stayed locally. Solar, and everything that goes with it (weatherization, conversion to heat pumps, electric cars) has the potential to re-invent our economy for the 21st century and simultaneously protect these natural resources we cherish.
