Now that we've all (finally!) wised up to the ills of using coal for energy production, it's time to seriously consider alternatives. Enter Solarize Charlotte, a newly formed nonprofit that aims to up our solar panel usage.
On Thursday, June 3, Solarize will host a panel discussion for "anyone interested in reducing their electrical bill and carbon footprint with a home solar system." Participants will explain how to install the panels and low-interest loans and tax credits available to interested homeowners.
Show up at the Plaza Midwood International House, 1817 Central Ave., at 5:30 for the meet and greet and stick around till 6 for the panel.
