In Boulder, Colo., voters on Tuesday approved Proposition 1A, establishing a county-wide program to finance rooftop photovoltaic installations. The program, based on a similar program approved a year ago by the Berkeley City Council in California, will lend a homeowner the funds to build a solar system, then recoup the investment over 20 years with a surcharge on the home’s property tax.
The Boulder measure passed by a 2-to-1 margin, and will be implemented during 2009.
Meanwhile, the Berkeley FIRST program launches . . . today, Nov. 5. See details here.
