It's always darkest just before dawn: rooftop solar shines light on Joplin tragedy
Well, it’s been more than a month now since the absolutely devastating and tragic tornado event in Joplin, MO and the surrounding areas of the South and middle America. But from many tragedies, wonderful flowers can blossom, and here is a story of just such an event in our great nation.
A press release from Reuters tells us, “A key player is Greensburg GreenTown, a nonprofit organization that promotes green projects and gives tours. The town boasts the most LEED-certified buildings, a recognized system of measuring green projects, per capita in America.”
So, to be sure, Joplin and it’s new slogan, “Stronger. Better. Greener.” tells us that Joplin and the area surrounding it have been walking the green walk since before this devastation came to town.
The best news that has come from this is that Joplin and Greensburg have solid, concrete plans to make the city more livable again as it rebuilds using solar energy as well as new plans to use wind energy as well.
We at Adair Solar Company in Mesa truly hope that if such a terrible disaster were ever to hit us here in Arizona that our community would banned together to work toward any efforts that would use solar energy and other renewable resources to bounce back in as positive a way as possible given the circumstances.
That said, as of right now, the Phoenix Metro Area is doing a pretty great job of making solar energy in Phoenix a priority. We’re proud of our community and love to support solar in Mesa and beyond.
