Letter to the Editor: Sitting pretty in sun at age 95
“How do Vermonters heat their homes?” (Dec. 18) gave short shrift to the 186 percent increase in the use of solar energy to keep our homes warm and comfy. I was like all Vermonters who bristle at heating our homes with dirty, expensive fuel oil or propane.
So I turned to clean solar energy to heat my home in the winter and get guilt-free air conditioning in the summer. I’ll save thousands of dollars every year by not burning all that propane — and that’s with the current drop in fuel prices.
The next time they spike again, I’ll be sitting even prettier. As a 95-year-old on a fixed income, this is a great help.
Solar heating is here in Vermont in a big way.
