Auto Repair Shops Plan To Tap Into Solar Energy

George Rode fixes cars, and now he's trying to do his part to get a few extra miles out of Mother Earth. Rode is preparing to install solar photovoltaic electric systems on the roofs of his two Eugene auto repair shops, Euro-Asian Automotive and Autohaus.

To pay for the systems, he has obtained a $200,000 loan from the State Energy Loan Program, and he's kicking in $25,000 of his own money. He'll pay 6.75 percent interest on the five-year loan, said Jeff Keto, manager of the State Energy Loan Program.

Rode said he decided to make the investment because he is concerned about global warming.

"Everybody is going to have to react, down to the car you drive to how much garbage you create to putting down the big bucks so you can produce some of your own electricity," he said. "If you can cut down on the amount of power you consume, you're going to be doing the right thing for our society."
