Every Rooftop Matters
never been a better time for homeowners to add solar panels to roof: easy, affordable, and beneficial

5 reasons
1. green power
2. more affordable than ever, material costs have fallen, federal and state incentives
3. solar-leasing programs: rent or purchase power from a system for 10 to 20 years, put solar on roof for cheap or free, locked-in electrical-utility rate (how exactly does this work??)
4. support U.S. economy
5. can charge a hybrid of EV using it

Sierra Club's solar pilot program
