Doctors "Go Green" In ENC

With the high cost of electricity, we're seeing more homes outfitted with renewable energy sources. And one county in the east is now one of the first with two businesses now capable of producing electricity.

Two practices in Greenville are now the first to install solar panels at their offices.

The Kidney Center and Doctor's "Q"'s Dentist Office will soon convert solar energy to electricity.

With tax incentives of up to 65 percent in the next five years, it's a win-win situation for customers and it's a plus for Greenville Utilities.

One of the doctors we talked to say they hope to run their entire office on the power they generate with the solar energy.

    Maybe if more people rode bikes to as many places as possible, they would not need to go to the doctor's office as much. I, too, am tired of paying higher rates at stores and places because of huge parking lots that go underused most of the time. This is one reason why Amazon.com and Internet selling is killing local retailers with lower prices.

    How about some information on companies or people in ENC that install and service Solar energy and the cost.

    The question begs to be asked, How much of the enviroment did we polute making these solar panels and how do we get rid of this stuff when they quit working, dump it in a land fill to set for millions of years?

    I am tired of hearing about this going green garbage. This is something that should have been done 50 years ago. It's a little too late now.

    This is great news. Now I just wish there were local pushes to encourage more people and businesses to end our oil addiction and that being energy self reliant was the norm. I just hope that these businesses also push for sidewalks and bike lanes/racks with smaller parking lots so that people can get to them without polluting.
