Sun 101: Talking about the future of solar

ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - Videographer and climate educator Peter Sinclair gave a presentation on the future of solar Wednesday night in Escanaba.

The session, called 'Sun 101,' talks about the benefits and realities of solar energy for the future.

It came directly after the UP Energy Task Force meeting about propane, in which some task force members remained to listen.

Sinclair gathers research from scientists and presents it to communities considering solar. Escanaba Township has been debating the implementation of a solar farm for months.

"It has a tremendous number of advantages in terms of flexibility," says Sinclair. "It can be home scale, business scale, it can be community scale."

Sinclair says other advantages include the fact that it creates energy without creating carbon - a major contributor to climate change.
