Green Change to Be? It’s Up to Me

There are days when I think “so many changes, so little time.” I get a tad overwhelmed about what I should be doing next to make my world and me healthier.  Bite sized chunks are always good when in that mode.  So yesterday I took a bite.  I signed up for something that our local utility company, Tucson Electric Power (TEP), offers called Bright Tucson Community Solar. It’s a program that offers the customer an opportunity to purchase solar power in 150 kilowatt blocks. I bought three blocks which will increase my utility bill by $9/month.  It’s a baby step but it’s a step. Can you imagine if 10,000 people in Pima County decided to take one with me? Small steps, big impact.

To our bright, sustainable future!
