The article focuses on the efforts of San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center (SLVRMC) in Colorado to use solar power as a cost-efficient alternative energy source. According to Henry Garvin, chief operating officer of SLVRMC, the hospital will activate a solar array that will provide as much as 85% of the hospital's electricity if everything goes right until June 2009. The hospital's solar field will reportedly cost about $11 million upon completion.
