I speak on behalf of other students when I say there is no where else that has so many amazing books all under the same roof.”

Soak Up the Sun
Solar panels provide excellent solution for natural energy and sustainable design
Did you know that the days are longer during the summer than the winter? That means there are more hours of sunlight, and the sunlight actually has a shorter path to travel to reach the earth’s surface during summer months. The point? Each hour of summer sun has more energy than an hour of winter sun, and now is the best time to installsolar panels to translate all that energy to your home.
There are panels available on the market that can essentially provide you anywhere from three to eight years of free power. Recent legislation has mandated in many areas that the power company must buy excess power that you generate… so you could potentially receive a check rather than writing one. Now that’s hot.
If you are searching for where to buy all things green, we recommend products available at www.solarhome.org. AFREE solar evaluation is also available by calling 1-888-587-5501.
Go put that 45 spf on, and head to your roof to make your home greener this summer!
