Sorry about that, I must have hit the wrong button. That email was to go to
 my husband.

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.
