Harrisonburg Low-Income Housing to Use Solar Power

HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) - Residents of a low-income housing apartment building in Harrisonburg will soon be using solar power.

The Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority has signed a 20-year solar services agreement with Staunton-based Secure Futures.

The company will install solar panels on the roof of the building. The panels will generate a total 34 kilowatts of electricity.

Secure Futures CEO Tony Smith tells WHSV-TV that the project will save money for both residents and taxpayers.

Smith says the federal tax credits will fund 30 percent of the project's cost.

The project is expected to be completed by September.
