Ed Norton & solar panels. Photo credit: Solar NeighborsThe New York Times featured a nice piece last week on the solar power trend in California. It seems, that like driving a Prius, celebrities have helped make solar power a bit of a “I’m so cool, it’s hot” factor:

Solar power is also emerging as a kind of status symbol, a glamorous mark of personal responsibility. Celebrities, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Alicia Silverstone, Carlos Santana and Tom Seaver, have installed solar systems. (Edward Norton runs a campaign in Los Angeles, encouraging his fellow celebrities to install solar panels on their homes and to make donations for systems in low-income housing.)

They’re talking about Ed Norton’s Solar Neighbors program, which is in partnership with BP. (The site needs some updating, Ed! Latest news is from 2005. But I’ll still watch every movie you’re in, even if it’s too scary for me. I *heart* you.)

There are some major federal and state incentives in place to get solar into your home.  Do it because it’s the right thing to do…or for the status symbol! Learn more.
