Learn More About Solarize Durham in the Discovery Tent Today

One more step closer to solar for us!

So much is happening! Our visit from BeFree Solar's Kapil was great! The fairgrounds are teaming with activity and some of that includes a corner of the Discovery Tent and "Go Solar Durham" where the BeFree Solar people will be featured. Get down there and ask your questions! As far as solar at Mothership Farm (that's what we call our little place), the energy audit is on the calendar (a pre-req for the program), Historic District papers are filed, and the credit union is working on the financing. It's all coming together.

The Fall chill greats us in the morning as we head out to take care of the horse and chickens and I am giddy in the knowledge that soon panels on my roof will be helping to keep things bright and warm inside our home. That feels good. Durham has already contracted with enough homeowners to qualify for the third pricing tier and that means the price is going down for everyone.  That means less oil and coal will be ripped from the beautiful earth on our account.That just feels good in another way.

First I want to state that I full support this program. I just think its ironic that as a community we our concerned with saving energy, and no one says BOO to the fair, who leave all the lights on. Day and night for a week. Go figure.

Ahhh, like minds! Paul and I were sitting at the top of the hill and couldn't help noticing what beautiful southern exposure that llama building has. I'll be talkiing to the BeSolar people about harvesting all of that good energy, and seeing what I can do to get the right people connected. They did actually NOT have that security light shining day and night into my yard this year for the week up to the fair.

Lets see if the Fair installs solar panels on all the buildings. Some how, I doubt they care enough to do so.

Ooooo, sounds like a challange. Does anyone know if any other Fairs in NE are solar powered? I'd love to be the first!
