Thinking of going solar? The pros and cons…

I’ve got to give a shout out to my good friend Martin Lamonica, an Arlington resident and star reporter covering the intersection of the environment and technology for CNET (now part of CBS).┬áMartin’s an authority on things green and he and his lovely wife (and fellow journo) Elizabeth have done a substantial amount of work to reduce their carbon footprint — rainwater capture for the garden, beefed up insulation and solar, among other things.

Recently, CNET sent a film crew out to get his take on the big question of the day: should I install solar panels on my roof? Martin gives an excellent run down of the pros and cons in this short Web video. Check it out.
