Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    Solar Energy in Coweta County:

    You can search for a solar installer in your area of Coweta County by clicking here.

    All graphs I see for locations in Coweta County indicate that Coweta County is suitable for solar energy based on the amount of sunshine received during the year. For example, for Sharpsburg, GA here is the graph of sunshine received on a month-by-month basis compared with the national average:

    This information can be useful to help determine if Sharpsburg will do well with solar photovoltaic panels (for solar electricity generation), solar water heating systems, solar pv, solar heat, solar pool heating, etc. The closer the dark green line is to the light blue line (or the higher it is above it), the better. Sharpsburg matches the light blue line pretty well, going above (better) some months, and below (worse) some months. The rest of Coweta County, GA shows a pattern similar to that of Sharpsburg. To be sure your property is suitable, click on the link above, find your town and then zip code, then fill in the form to get a detailed analysis and quote. On average for the nation, you break even on your investment in solar energy within 3-5 years and after that you get many years of essentially free energy (warranties on solar panels range from 20-25 years...so that is 15-20 years of nearly free energy from your solar panels).

    Chattahoochee Hill Country

    Chattahoochee Hill Country (CHC) is a 65,000 acre area southeast of Atlanta. It is one of the last undeveloped and rural areas located within 30 minutes of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the busiest airport in the world. It includes rolling hills, streams, forests and farms and a population of about 3,000 people.

    The residents of CHC want to retain the natural beauty of this unspoiled area, yet realize that development is inevitable. We seek two goals: to preserve our rural vistas and heritage (about 60% of the land) and to concentrate sustainable development primarily along South Fulton Parkway, the major connection with Atlanta.

    “There is no heavier burden than a great opportunity.”

    We have the opportunity to “do it right” by preserving natural resources and creating communities which will enrich future generations of residents. We know we do not want suburban sprawl which contributes to global climate change and which hinders the building to real community.

    Hours spent driving from one place to another prevents people from being neighbors and establishing friendships within the community. Part of our CHC rural heritage is “neighbor helping neighbor.” As new neighborhoods are developed, we would like that heritage transformed to “neighbors being friends with neighbors.”
