The Town of Blacksburg launched a new program to help homeowners go green without a strain on their finances. The program, called Solarize Blacksburg, allows home and business owners to go solar for the same cost as standard electricity. It also protects them from future increases in electric bills. Mayor Ron Rordam says it's always been a priority for the town to be eco-friendly.
Solarize Blacksburg is part of a wider effort to reduce greenhouse gas.
