Yosemite National Park has installed the largest solar energy system in the whole United States National Park System. The system will provide 672 kilowatts which is 12% of the park’s yearly electric power requirements. The system installed by Suntek (doesn’t that name make you just want to hug a tree?) consists of 2,800 solar panels “tastefully” integrated into the existing architecture of Yosmite’s administrative and maintenance compound.
A 500 kilowatt solar canopy covers the parking lot, a 100 kW rooftop section serves as a collection system on top of the warehouse and an additional 72 kWs wrap the building’s outer walls.

On the evening of April 17, 2009 the real meaning of what Barack Obama’s call for shared sacrifices was forced on the families of Leigh Anna Jimmerson and of Tad Mattle, a 19 year old from Huntsville Alabama any family would be proud to claim. Tad was more than a typical teenager. Leigh Anna was Tad girlfriend – family and friends said they were a great couple – he had an old car he worked on – but Tad was also an Eagle Scout who had planned to attend the University of Alabama on a full academic scholarship.
