Idaho Smart Growth is a cosponsor of the Snake River Alliance’s effort to make solar power more prominent in Idaho. The program, Solarize the Valley, is in its second year and offers free solar site assessments on homes or businesses until July 31.
The Snake River Alliance has four events coming up: a July 6 workshop in Caldwell and three open houses in Boise. All events and more information can be found at solarizethevalley.org.
The use of solar energy encourages the continued efforts in renewable energy, helps to preserve green spaces, and fosters sustainable use of resources- all of which are aspects of Idaho Smart Growth principles.
