Environmental Law & Policy Center Explains Solar Power and Answers Consumer Questions

Jun 16, 2010, 12:05 ET from Environmental Law & Policy Center

CHICAGO, June 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new online resource launched by the Environmental Law & Policy Center will help consumers understand how solar energy could power their homes and businesses. With solar panel prices at their lowest point in years and new financial incentives available, solar power is becoming an attractive opportunity to many consumers.

"Solar power makes sense for the growing number of consumers concerned about unpredictable energy bills and looking to solve global warming pollution problems," said Howard Learner, Executive Director of the Environmental Law & Policy Center.  "We're giving consumers the tools they need to tap into this clean energy resource."

The new ELPC web-based FAQ addresses common questions about how and where solar equipment works, what financial incentives and income opportunities are available and how to locate a solar installer and get a project underway.

The information on solar power is available at www.elpc.org/solarfaq. After the initial launch, ELPC will regularly add updated information and respond to public input.

The Environmental Law & Policy Center is the Midwest's leading environmental legal advocacy and eco-business innovation organization. www.ELPC.org
