Solar Power: Law and Economics

   By Linda M. Bullen, Shareholder, Lionel Sawyer & Collins; General Editor Bradley M. Marten

Solar energy is one of the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy sources in the world. Although current technology exists which allows the effective use of this power, substantial challenges still arise, including financing, permitting, and environmental review. This pamphlet discusses how proponents of solar energy can address each of these concerns for the purpose of constructing a successful solar energy project. Coverage includes discussion of the economic incentives available for developing solar technology as well as the applicable permits and authorizations needed for such a project.

    I find global warming very harmful! I think that people should start walking and riding bikes more instead of using up all kinds of gas and fossil fuels. Smoke and oxygen are harming our ozone layer.
