Here is a CNN article about a solar company that has several unique aspects: Namaste Solar Electric is the company’s name, and they “walk their talk,” which is refreshing. Here is a link to Namaste’s actual website.

When companies, big and small, do what they can to reduce their impact on the earth, then it is a very good thing. Though solar energy has some limitations, in the right places with the right installations it is very good for many uses. Even in the Pacific Northwest where we can have 200+ cloudy days a year (and most of our electricity comes from hydropower), solar power can be used to help offset electricity needs, making power cheaper for everyone.

And yes, solar power is one of the improvements we hope to make to our home at some point. When we re-roof in about 7 years, sooner if we can.
