Santa Clarita Valley Starting with One Solar Panel

On November 18, 2008, a letter was sent to several Santa Clarita Valley Homeowners Associations, Community leaders, Business leaders and other Project oriented team members requesting that the HOAs please take the steps necessary to start a discussion into renewable energy sources. This initial letter included a recommendation to consider to install one solar panel on an HOA's community building within the coverage area of the association.
See Initial Letter Here

With the recent extension of the tax benefits for implementing solar by businesses as well as homeowners, we believe that this effort will more than pay for itself with energy savings as well as make this community more desirable in the future. Rising fees for energy to maintain sprinklers, security lighting, air conditioning and heat of the facilities are of the utmost importance and this will allow our community to do something about it.

Homeowner funds should be used to enhance our community while lowering costs to our association today and into future years. By our actions we can demonstrate our commitment and set a great example to our members and community. Our community as a whole can express their participation in this beneficial effort.

Team, we welcome your participation and will keep you posted as progress develops!

Hi Team,
Thanks for the post!

Here is the link to the original letter that I sent out to the HOAs.
Initial Letter:

ACTION ITEM: Check into the CC list on Page 1. If you happen to know these folks ask them what they think about the project, and how they or we can help move this project along! :-)

Here is a letter that may work for HOMEOWNERS to send into their HOA:

ACTION ITEM: Check into it and provide feedback we can modify it and repost for distribution.
Enjoy the day!
