Gallery going Solar

Nelson Fine Art is the recipient of a Solar Installation Grant to help pay for the installation of solar array modules. $9M of federal stimulus money was allocated to Tennessee with applications accepted beginning June 21 this year. By late September it was completely awarded. 2 upper East Tennessee businesses were among those statewide receiving the grant. We were one! Our application was in by the beginning of August and we made it through the approval process in just 6 weeks. I must give credit to Lightwave Solar for making the process smooth and seamless. They will be handling the whole project. The local newspaper, Johnson City Press, had a nice piece in todays (10/4/10) paper.

I realize this has nothing to do with art or framing, but it puts us in place to be better stewards of energy not to mention instant savings on our electric bill!
