Letter: Encouraging Solar Power

Letter to the Editor

The recent article on solar power and its efficiency, "Making Power While the Sun Shines," [Arlington Connection, June 10] proved incredibly provocative and should lead to further expansion of solar development across the state of Virginia.

Arlington's solar energy programs could not only lead to an increase of solar homes in our county, but also could affect other local counties throughout Virginia. A concerted program among other local counties would be beneficial and could lead to a massive increase in solar homes, which the article stated was the goal of Virginia Sun and its partners, Arlingtonians for a Clean Environment (ACE) and Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy (AIRE).
