You would have to be from Mars to not notice all of the solar fields in our county. Seems like everywhere you look someone is putting in a new solar field or garden.
The one aspect of solar that is a bit harder to see is those that are actually on homes and that directly assist with powering those homes. On October 5 there will be a solar tour of a private home in the area and the public is invited.
The house is located on 309th Street in Shafer and is part of a National Solar Tour. The public is invited to stop by to see the panels and learn about the family’s solar experience. The family will have an electric car on display and also talk about their efforts to become a Monarch Butterfly Way Station.
The tour runs from 10 am to 3 pm with light appetizers and beverages available.
Congratulations to St. Croix Regional Medical Center for turning the big 100! The people that make up SCRMC are some of the nicest people you would ever hope to meet. We switched our family care to SCRMC years ago and have been completely happy with every aspect of care. Here is to another 100 years!
