How to Go Solar If You Can't Put Panels on Your Roof - Shareable
An acquaintance recently told me about her experience investigating solar for her home. A solar company told her that in order to go solar, she would have to cut down the trees that shade her house -- an unfortunate trade off. If your house is shaded, your roof is facing the wrong direction, or you're a renter, you join the many Americans that can't go solar at home.
What to do?
Thankfully, depending on where you live and your motivations are, there are lots of ways you can support the solar energy transition underway.
