Solar Roof on the Plaza Apartments

On the roof, solar panels feed the building's energy needs. The Plaza Apartments are pursuing a LEED silver rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.

    SO COOL!!!

    Would you mind if we used this on our Audio thread accompanying an interview with Ted Bier, President of TM Bier & Associates? He restructures energy systems in new an existing buildings and has some good things to say about solar.

    There's already a photo up there but I'd love to replace it with this one. Please let me know if you wouldn't mind sharing.
