I guess you can tell I been on a solar kick lately... Just found this interesting page on The Muny website. Every year my mom and I go to the Muny in St. Louis...an outdoor theater. So I was checking out the line-up for this season and notice, Muny Green. I am always interested in what companys and organizations are doing to conserve, recycle etc.
The Muny now has solar panels... 20kw wow! I know it is hard to visualize the amount of power a solar panel makes and what you are saving in CO2 etc. So the Muny has a page on their website that gives real- time energy monitoring. Check it out: http://www.munysolar.com/
Other news this week...
Dodl, our intrepid mascot helped pick up trash for "Keep Peoria Beautiful" Week. Just a small part in recycling and keeping our city nice.
In January kacadodl planned news features of solar, but as winter takes hold...it postpones even well laid plans. But we are rolling now.
I attended a Solar install in East Peoria this week. StraightUp Solar had a full crew at Carol and Dave Bullocks East Peoria home. It is the first of two installs in central IL this week. We watched the crew to see first hand the process of clean solar energy coming to rooftops in our area. The whole family had a front row seat to the event. :)
Look for a exciting step by step install video to come: along with indepth interview with home owners and family, details from lead installer, myths demistified and more.
