There are other uses for solar rather than generating electricity. Passive solar heating would reduce electricity use, and solar hot water would do the same. When I was a child, my family used to rent a cottage on the Bay that had solar hot water. That was more than 50 years ago! Also, solar panels to produce some of the electricity on an individual house would help, too. Margaret You are subscribed to VA-Richmond-General.
