Just in time for Saturday's #PutSolarOnIt day of action, we (Communitopia) released the latest Don't Just Sit There - Do Something! video, this time on solar power! As always, we relay the science and news about climate change with a healthy dose of humor. Please watch and share!
Actions this episode:
- COMMENT IN SUPPORT OF EPA CLEAN POWER PLAN, and
- USE SOLAR POWER:
--- How much will it cost where I live? How can I find an installer?
--- More consumer financing options?
--- Community-based solar financing - you and your neighbors can buy in bulk!
--- I want to support or start a solar investment project!
So much of the obstacle to adopting solar power seems to be that it's hard to know where to start and takes a lot of work to figure out --- and, of course, we need better policies in place to encourage adoption. The above links are a starting point on both fronts. Those who know more about installing solar power or have personal stories to share (I know there are lots of you out there) are encouraged to comment!
You can follow the show on YouTube, Facebook, Google+, iTunes, at djst.tv, or on Twitter:@dsa_climate to be assured of timely updates!
Thank you, as always, for your comments, recs, tips, and reshares.
