This week, our special guest and super volunteer (seriously, no one takes more EcoRight actions than this man) Larry Howe and I geek out on our experiences with residential solar. An early adopter, Larry has had solar at his house long enough to upgrade his system and found a nonprofit, Plano Solar Advocates. He also signs all his emails Shine On, which feels appropriate to share given the topic at hand.
He’s also one of our more organized guests, sending me links to mentions he made on the show, which you can find below:
- Solar United Neighbors: a great non-profit helping folks learn about going solar
- The West Texas Power Plant that Saved the World: Energy, Capitalism, and Climate Change: Good book that includes lots of good info about the history and growth of solar deployments.
- REPORT: TEXAS CAN GET TO NET-ZERO BY 2050 AND SIMULTANEOUSLY BOLSTER THE ECONOMY: ” The world is decarbonizing. … If Texas ignores the challenge to decarbonize its economy, it may eventually face the more difficult challenge of selling carbon-intensive products to customers around the world who do not want them…”
We are eternally grateful to count Larry in our community!
