Ojai Valley Postcard - a Greenpeace Initiative

THANKS Greenpeace%20logo.png

The Ojai Valley was chosen as a video location for a Greenpeace Initiative - Postcards from Climate Change.
The topic - 'going solar' - inspired by the Coalition's Solarize Ojai Valley program.

Check out the video here. Solar%20array%20with%20Wayne_low%20res.jpg

BTW - for the next year the city of Ojai just joined Ventura County in waiving solar permit fees. Until August 14, 2014 save around $500.00 just on permitting, if you live in Ojai city limits! Save more if you sign-up by October 9, 2013 for a solar system thru the Coalition Solarize Ojai Valley program - see entry further down.
