Your Call 030508 Solar Rising

Why is Solar rising over the Bay Area? On the next Your Call we talk to different stakeholders in the solar boom taking place around the Bay Area. Cities are making it easier to install panels on residences and offices, even subsidizing it; local companies are spearheading research into new technologies and local contractors and non-profits are making it practical. What policies are happening in your town to make solar's present as bright as its future? It's Your Call, with Sandip Roy and you.
