Solarize Harrisonburg Makes The Breeze

Robyn Smith, editor and journalist with JMU’s The Breeze, wrote a fine article about Solarize Harrisonburg which was posted online on Sunday, October 5 and appeared in the Monday, October 6, 2014, print edition. See the online version here: Solar Energy is a priority for the Climate Action Alliance.

The article features Solarize Harrisonburg’s local coordinator and CAAV steering committee member Joy Loving:

“Loving installed solar panels in her home back in 2012, which led to personal enlightenment, as well as a lightening of her electric bill. …

The more conscious Loving became of her own energy use, the more she turned against mainstream sources of energy.

‘I tell people I became like an ex-smoker who is very anti-cigarettes. I am now rabidly pro-solar. Most people do not enjoy getting their electric bills and I now enjoy getting mine, because I pay $8.40 a month [instead of the $100 a month pre-switch] for infrastructure costs,’ Loving said.”

Joy will be featured on WMRA’s The Spark with Martha Woodroof on Friday, October 10 at 6:20 PM: Joy and Sunshine. Find it at 90.7 FM on Friday evening or archived online after it airs.
