Solar Tour Featuring Bob's House
Geez...we have a pResident who is now urging conservation. What's up with that? Oh...but funding Amtrak is out of the question and SUV tax breaks are still his claim to fame. More incentives for alternative energy development? Nah, it might cut into the potential oil profits that line his pocket and threaten his corporate war machine.
There are however, people who place as their personal priorities, experimentation with alternative forms of energy, and they are an inspiration. Bob is one
. Through his endeavors I am aware of the Great Lakes Renewable Energy Association
They are highlighting The Michigan Solar Tour
. As part of the Michigan Solar Tour sponsored by American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Tour, is the Washtenaw County Solar Tour
which will be featuring Bob's house.
Bob has meticulously maintained a blog
detailing the progress of his project, including things I would have never thought about, like simplified battery watering. He has some new information posted too that would be extremely helpful for anyone else experimenting with solar shingles. I'm sure he would also share what he's learned if asked specific questions. I'm sure I have a few, which I will be asking when I visit.
