Today’s show topic or theme – Solar Power part Uno… Your home, Your Power, your Bill – Your choice, Our future
“Today we’re going to cover, active solar topics, the basics of solar power, solar terms and definitions, etc…
-we’ll discuss some of the credits rebates and money saving strategies involved and explore how to get Uncle Sam to pay for a portion of your system.”
This is so important because when the number of houses with solar systems on them reaches a number, say 5000 or more….we don’t need to build a new power plant…collectively they will become the equivalent of a clean one…That will be exciting won’t it....so lets move on with the show…Doug?
