Power shift: Dish promotes solar solution
DISH — While many miles of natural gas pipeline lay below ground, solar panels are starting to pop up on rooftops in this town of 201.
Solar panels were installed at Town Hall about a year ago, according to town employee Amber Smith. One retired couple also installed solar panels on their home about a year ago.
This week, about two-dozen residents came to a regular town meeting to hear from a renewable energy company about what to expect if they choose to install a home solar-collection system.

Hello. I live in the Houston area and I have been seeing a lot of solar panels going up on roofs around here too. I would hate to see how bad the already overloaded power grids would be if there was not already some people using solar power.
