Mel Packer & Emily DeFerrari enjoy their array

Mel Packer and Emily DeFerrari have a 4.32 kw 16 panel array in Point Breeze. Why did Mel and Emily decide to install solar? “We put panels on to reduce our load on the environment, both Federal and State credits were available which made it more affordable, and it seemed like the right thing to do in terms of both personal and political commitment to the struggle for environmental justice.”
