TALLAHASSEE'S INTERACTIVE SOLAR MAP


The City recently updated its interactive solar map to designate locations using solar.  I wish that there was a way to filter out all the Lamar billboards for a cleaner, clearer picture of what's solar in Tallahassee.  



Check it out at City of Tallahassee's solar map here.

Prices of solar panels continue to drop, moving solar toward becoming a more economically viable option.  The Institute for Local Self Reliance says that by 2021, one-third of the US could reach solar parity.  [defined as when the cost of solar electricity--without subsidies--is equal to or lower than residential retail electrical rate.]

See the Institutes report, Changing Everything with Cost-Effective Local Solar, here [opens as PDF].

Currently, Sustainable Tallahassee has a Renewable Energy committee that is working on a host of renewable options, including some innovative ideas about solar.  Contact them at their website if you are interested in joining the local conversation and moving this issue forward.
