More on solar energy

The Senate bill that will extend the solar tax credit (and do a lot more good besides) is S 3335, Jobs, Energy, Families and Disaster Relief Act of 2008, which would replace HR 6049 (Rep. Don Young voted against that one). Senators Baucus and Reid have introduced this bill and it could be voted on as early as Tuesday, July 29. Solarnation has an Action Alert on it: write your senators! Ted Stevens and Lisa Murkowski need to know Alaskans support this.

In the summertime, we've got oodles of light. And we have a heck of a lot more of it in the wintertime than Lower 48ers would suspect, simply because of reflection off of all that snow.
