Seeing that sign definitely made me stop in my tracks. In fact, it made me grab my camera from home and take these photos
I live in San Francisco, and this sign was just another reminder to me that California is really ahead of the curve sometimes when it comes to energy and "green" technology. Now I know that solar is nothing new, but to see solar panels sitting on top of a building that was built in the early 1900s is definitely an awesome sight. And it made me think that if you can get solar panels on a building this old, what is stopping other businesses and buildings from doing the same.
This old Edwardian style building located in the heart of San Francisco, and which has probably been around since the great California earthquake of 1906, is heating water with the use of solar panels. I think this just another sign of the times. A good sign of the times that maybe we are moving forward in a smarter direction of energy use.
So are there any unique places where you are seeing solar power used? Let me know.
