Solar on TV
DORCHESTER, Mass.--From his Web-enabled TV, Ivan Liriano shows off how much power his rooftop solar panels are producing. Liriano and fiancee Cynthia Loesch earlier this month hosted a ribbon-cutting for the first Platinum-level LEED residential green building in this neighborhood of Boston. The couple needed to do a lot more than just hire contractors. To build the home, they had to convince bankers, city officials, and neighbors that building a green home wasn't more expensive than traditional methods. They also wanted to include all the high-tech touches they desired.
