Savannah Morning News
Local solar advocate Jack Star points to several recent developments that have him feeling optimistic about solar energy in the Savannah area:
-Home products giant Ikea announced in December that its Savannah distribution center is among 10 of its U.S. facilities slated to receive a solar makeover in 2012. The company expects to install enough solar panels locally to power the equivalent of 175 homes.
-Sustainable Fellwood on West Bay Street is now home to what may be the largest solar installation on affordable housing in Georgia, an up and running 85kW system on the development's senior citizen center.
-Most importantly, solar's price is falling.
