This isn’t really such a “great” idea — it’s an obvious and common-sense one. I was recently forbidden by the City of Charleston from placing solar panels on my downtown roof for reasons of aesthetics. I, too, love this city’s aesthetics, but isn’t it time we realized that there won’t be a gorgeous city here for anyone to gawk at if we don’t change our energy sources . . . and if coastal cities that are under the most threat, like ours, don’t even bother to lead the way?
