Plano Solar Advocates July Newsletter (dated 7/7/13)

Please forward this information to persons in Plano and the surrounding area that might be interested in promoting the use of clean energy in the form of solar energy - our untapped natural energy resource in Texas!

Our Solarize Plano Project is progressing!  As of July 6 we had 18 persons enrolled.  We need a minimum of 20 to proceed with the project, so help keep spreading the word.  Information is available at our Solarize Plano website and our project announcement is available at the Dallas Morning News NeighborsGo website.  See the story here - PLANO SOLAR ADVOCATES INTRODUCE “SOLARIZE PLANO” GROUP PURCHASE SOLAR PROGRAM FOR LOCAL HOMEOWNERS
