"Speed Dating" for Solar & Clean Energy Oct. 13th

Come and explore solar as well as other clean energy options at a friendly, fun roundtable event at Hillsboro Main Library.

Hillsboro is offering a solar incentive program to encourage residents and businesses to "go solar." The Hillsboro Solar Advantage program, in collaboration with SolarWorld USA and Tanasbourne-based LiveLight Energy, provides an opportunity to purchase and install a SolarWorld rooftop solar system with packaged incentives. Participants who sign up by October 31st can take advantage of 2011 federal and state tax credits. State tax credits will be lower in 2012.

Hillsboro Main Library is hosting a workshop on Thursday, October 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. Come and explore solar as well as other clean energy options at this friendly, fun roundtable event. Meet with table hosts and collect handouts about all your energy options.

There are other opportunities to learn about solar energy and attend workshops. Check the schedule at the Hillsboro Solar Advantage web site.
