Carl McDaniel wants Lorain County residents to bask in the sunshine. The Oberlin College environmental studies professor helped found the Oberlin Peoples Energy Coalition in an effort to rally community support for solar energy, which uses roof-mounted panels to capture the sun's rays and convert them into enough electricity to run a home. In January, the energy coalition and solar energy nonprofit OH Sun formed the Lorain County Solar Co-op, which will make the purchase and installation of solar panels easier. McDaniel, who installed his own solar panel system in 2006, fills us in on the details.
