Supporting solar

To the Editor:

Oregon Rural Action is thankful toward Union County commissioners and the Union-Wallowa Credit Union for their support of energy conservation. They are both providing seed money for Solarize Union County.

That effort will result in energy savings for the homeowners installing solar water heating systems. 

Those systems will pay for themselves in as little as eight to 10 years while providing significant monthly savings on utility bills. 

The credit union is also helping to prepare and administer the low-interest loans they are making available to qualified borrowers.

Both organizations have shown that they understand the value to the community of these energy savings. We’re very grateful for their leadership.
