Alice, I think this one's really great! People and businesses are going to have to take it upon themselves to change over to clean alternative energy, instead of waiting for the government to do something.

Very true Toni ~ That is what our family has done here at the farm. Other farms in the area are doing the same.

A small step, but at least the right direction.

Why isn't this common practice? I have solar panels on my roof.

This article shows that change to solar power is already market driven. I do not know why the fossilfuel lobby isn't investing billions and trillions in renewable energy. Their window of opportunity is now, before too many small businesses and individuals make them irrelevant. At present they could have the advantage and control a lot of the solar and wind generated energy and thus hang on to the power and control to which they are addicted without destroying the world.

Thanks for posting this, Alice. With all the recent frightening news about nuclear power, it's good to remind people that solar energy is actually being put to use and working out (and this complex is in New Jersey).

Took the words out of my mouth Toni......Wow, look at how massive the roof is and we have that same deal on so many large buildings that could do the same. Thanks for posting Alice.

Yes, Dandelion...roof tops all over the world can be used...carports can be used for solar panels for heating water for domestic use and for photovoltaics. Many farmers here in New Jersey are putting panels on thier barn roof tops ! : )

More and more we need this, instead of our money going to big oil companies as welfare. Our nation needs to support solar and other souces of energy NOW.

Solar Hot Water:

If you’ve grown cool on the idea of wasting energy and money on hot water, why not heat your water the natural way – with a solar thermal system from Solar Wind & Rain?

Solar thermal technology dates back to 1767, when a Swiss inventor, Horace de Saussure, captured the sun’s energy in a glass "hot box" that could heat to 228 degrees Fahrenheit in a matter of hours. In 1891, Baltimore entrepreneur Clarence Kemp became the first man to patent a solar thermal system, and by 1897 a third of the homes in Pasadena, California had water heated by the sun. In 1909 William Bailey patented a solar water heating system that could heat a large storage tank of water within the home. By 1918, Bailey had sold over 4,000 of his Day and Night Solar Hot Water Heaters.

What happened to end this early boom? Cheap energy. The discovery of natural gas in California killed the solar thermal industry there in the 1920s, while declining electricity rates later ended it in Florida, where over half of all homes had used the technology before World War II.

Today, rising oil and electricity costs have brought solar thermal back with a vengeance across the U.S. When we install a solar thermal system in your home, FREE sunlight keeps your water heated to 15-200 degrees Fahrenheit, slashing water heating costs and reducing electric bills up to 30%.

Very interesting. Being it's 30 minutes from my house, I plan to drive over out of curiosity.
