For interested homeowners, businesses, churches, or non profits, there is an opportunity to join residents in the Village of Silverton for bulk purchasing for solar panels. People need to contact the website prolightingsolar.com and send in their Duke energy bill for a free estimate. We are hoping to get all the sign ups by the beginning of March. Solar panels that are part of this bulk-purchase opportunity are made in America by unionized workers.
This effort to go solar is also being studied for our local government operations. Oxford City Council approved a feasibility study to evaluate all city owned buildings and properties for the ability to include solar panels/arrays. – Carla Blackmar Rice
