Solar power on the agenda tonight.

I forgot to mention in my previous post regarding tonight's agenda, that the Board will be hearing a presentation about a solar power program for our schools. We've been discussing the plan in the Facilities Committee for several months, so I'm looking forward to a conversation with the full Board and with the public. Stay tuned...

Before you waste any more time Laurie, re-read the last Ridgewood News. People in Ridgewood talk green, but when they start installing solar panels, eh...

The proposal discussed at Monday's BOE meeting involves another company putting solar panels on our school roofs and then selling us power, at a lower rate than we pay PSE&G. There would be no cash out of our pocket. No right-of-way issues as with the Village's light poles. I'll write more about the proposal soon, hopefully later tonight.

It doesn't sound like a bad idea at all considering you are saving money and you are preserving the environment at the same time. It is a win-win situation.
