Xmas in July.
From web green giant Treehugger.com’s Matthew McDermott of Brooklyn came this sunny praise: “Last week the Environmental Defense Fund released the first in its series of video clipsexplaining renewable energy and while they’re quick, catchy intros to the subject, the one’s posted so far are more in the gee-whiz-isn’t-that-cool line than anything else. However, Elephant Journal has posted the clip above, which is a short Q&A with Scott Franklin of Lighthouse Solar and is probably a better practical introduction to what it takes for an individual to install a solar energy system for their home than the EDF clips.”
