Bart Slawson is an Alabama environmental and business attorney and a voice for clean air. He helped start the Solar Test House with Alabama Environmental Council. He describes the STH as “a way of promoting solar power in Alabama in a way affordable to environmentally inclined citizens and small businesses and to attempt to reach into the future to address the rising demand and price and decreasing supply of centralized power production.”
Bart has also installed solar panels in his home in Birmingham, and is an advocate for clean, renewable energy. As he discusses in his story, alternative energy sources like solar have economic savings, but are also good for the air and our health.
