This is a great story about a green initiative, started in  California,
Berkeley, of course,

and being copied by entrepreneurs  into Boulder, CO.



Quick Summary: The city finances the cost of  adding solar panels to the
home and pays the costs from a public muni-bond  which is prorated to the
respective properties and added to the annual tax  bill for 20 years.  CA state
legislature, reportedly, has passed enabling  legislatioin for every CA
municipality to do  likewise.

I  think cohousing advocates could push for every state legislature to copy
the  model.



Thanks for reading.
