Solar power is on the rise thanks to public opinion, a federal incentive program, and, in some states–including Washington–a sales tax exemption. According to energy expert Philip Warburg (Harvest the Wind) solar power is key to ending fossil fuel consumption. In Harness the Sun, Warburg, whose own home is powered with solar panels, offers an overview of the individuals, businesses, and communities (from Native American groups to campus professors) who are utilizing the benefits of the sun’s rays. He’ll appear in conversation with Denis Hayes, President of the Bullitt Foundation, for a discussion of the incredible strides solar power is making, why renewable energy is essential to the future of the planet, and the status of solar power in the Puget Sound.
