"Many local officials said they understand the need to reduce the reliance on carbon-based energy. In fact, Scanlan said Wyckoff could talk with PSE&G about other locations for panels, such as the roofs of public buildings."
This could be a sensible alternative, since most public buildings, like schools, fire houses, libraries, hospitals and police stations use tax payer money to pay their electric bills. More tax money used for the services provided would be a more responsible use of tax money.
In looking at the picture showing the panels mounted to the power polls, claiming it looks ANY uglier than the step down transformers hanging on those same poles is, rat stupid. Really,REALLY, if the poles with the panels hanging from them is such an "eye sore", then suck it up, allow a $5.00 monthly sur charge on your electric bills and pay to have the utilities undergrounded.
