Volunteering to install solar this weekend
Just got done with one full day on the roof in Livermore, CA on a Habitat for Humanity multiple "green building" duplex project. The solar part's being coordinated by a local non-profit that installs solar for only low-income households: Grid Alternatives. In this case all the equipment was donated, so these homeowners will have close to a $0 electric bill from day one with no loan payment they would normally have to pay off the solar panels. I'll update after day two tomorrow and hopefully get some pictures up soon! It is so cool to see solar pv panels going up on a group of houses together ringing the same curved street.
Later . . .
