On Sunday, April 24, 2-4 PM, visit three more open houses for Earth Month.
Visit Tony and Margie Lee’s solar house at 14 Brooks Road (look for the Earth flag), featuring a solar photovoltaic system that was put in through Solarize 2012 (info here). This system has already paid for itself and is now making money. The Lees will share info on their solar production, the savings on electricity bills, and the SCREC shares, rebates and tax deductions, and you’ll see going solar is not just a good deal for the planet, but for the wallet as well. Then, to assured yourself this is not an exception, stroll on over to their neighbors, who have the same thing going on.
~ at the same time, within biking distance ~
Visit Sabine von Mering’s house at 6 Melville Place Solar: another Solarize Solar PV system, with more added later on, a newly installed heat pump, and an electric Smart Car (yellow!).
