I am a lifelong and committed environmental activist. And I have done many different things to both reduce my environmental impact and to raise environmental awareness and effect political change to protect the environment -- and human health.
A couple of weeks ago, Sopris Solar completed the installation of a two-array 19.6 kW solar system on the roof of one of our garage block units and the roof of our HOA Community House here in Highline Crossing Cohousing Community in Littleton, Colo.
The cohousing community that I live in -- Highline Crossing Cohousing -- here in Littleton, Colo. is FINALLY getting solar after a one-year wait for the installation and, prior to that, 18 months of me, and several other residents here in this community, working toward persuading our community to add a 20 kW solar system.
So, a new 20 kW solar system with two separate arrays on two separate roof areas, including a set of garages, is going up in our Highline Crossing Cohousing Community here in Littleton, Colo. :-)
Precisely 10 years ago to this month, REC Solar workers were on the rooftop of my Aurora, Colo. home installing a 5.5 kW solar system that is still there. The system outlasted me -- or, at least my marriage -- and is still there, pumping out clean, green electricity for the residents who bought the home from me and my now ex-wife in November of 2015, which we sold following a August 2015 divorce.
Have you been enjoying the cleaner air where you live? How about the reduced stress load due to having to do less driving and sit in far fewer traffic jams? Yeah, I thought so! Me too!
