Rethink Energy: New Lunar Panel Co-op

This regularly-scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment. 

Arlingtonians are often on the leading edge of emerging technologies and trends. Early adopters, so to speak.

Starting this spring we are excited to announce the launch of our new Lunar Power Co-op. Previously, solar panels were only able to harness the power of the sun, meaning moon light was being wasted.

Now, new solar panel technology that incorporates solar capture and lunar capture technology will be able to capture sun AND moonlight. That’s right, you can now power your home at night with lunar energy. These panels will be 137% more efficient than any other panels on the market. We’re pretty excited and we think you will be too.

Kidding aside, happy April Fools! Our real solar co-op launches today! We’ll be posting more info as this 4th co-op round is rolled out over the next week.
