Sunny power

There was an article put out by The Oregonian about solar panels.  Mary Lane Stevens, and Tom hard were mentioned in this article who have put solar panels around their house.  They want other people to follow them in becoming sustainable.  Another person mentioned in this article is Tim O’Neal, who is trying to start a solar panel movement all around Portland.   O’Neal is apart of “Southeast Uplift, a nonprofit coalition of 20 neighborhood associations.”(Rivera, D., 2010)

“The Solarize Portland program” (Rivera, D., 2010) is a program devoted to installing more than 150 homes with solar panels, by the end of the summer.  For more details, just visit their website.  Solarize Southwest, Solarize Northeast.

Can Portland get any more greener?

I was watching the news today and they had a report on solar homes. They mentioned that people save roughly 40-50% on their electricity bills yearly, and oregon just passed a bill for them to put in 250 to try it out. If this turns out to be a success our economy will be well on its way to living sustainably. If the people along with alternative energy companies keep putting pressure on the government with our demands for clean, renewable energy, one of these days, they will have to provide it whether they like it or not.
