ABSTRACT
The article offers information into the solar project of Berkeley, California. The city is one of the environmental innovator in the country and residents are considering another environmental project, solar energy. The local government supported such plan by providing loan to residents. Homeowners will be able to tack the annual loan payments onto their property tax bill. Such scheme eliminates the two major financial hurdles to installing solar electric and water heating systems. According to Dan Kammen, head of the University of California, Berkeley's Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, the plan flips the conventional financing and helped the city put the plan together.
