Solar Public

Shared sun power could stimulate desire for greener living

Implications - As solar power becomes more accessible to the individual consumer—be it through their homes, phones or backyard lighting—it is also becoming the focus of city planners and municipal governments. Now, everything from freeways to streetlights can harness the power of the sun, offering the general public the advantage of a greener environment, and ultimately encouraging more people to take on the eco lifestyle.
