ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move of Rising Star Stellar Home Furnishings to utilize solar panels as a way of generating electricity to be used in the store in Bend, Oregon. The latest development involves an inverter hooked up to a computer monitor. The equipment provides a readout that shows how many kilowatt hours the store has generated, along with the volume of greenhouse gases that has been eliminated.
