"Renewable energy is one of the key strategies we must follow in a very big way if we are to have any hope of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees centigrade. If we fail to do this, the long term consequences for all of humanity are unthinkable. The only way that solar energy can fulfill this promise is if it is widely affordable to all people. There are simply not enough wealthy people who can afford solar arrays to make a significant difference. GCCS and the 629 Locust project are at the forefront of this crucial restructuring of solar energy on a very wide scale. If we can figure out how to make 629 possible and operate it successfully we can use it as a model for a very wide audience that will give hope to many other groups and individuals. We are doing far more than simply putting solar panels on a roof of a building in Toledo, Ohio."
