When Ed isn't busy being "Grandpa Big Dog" to grandkids Ty, Brody, Ethan and Olivia, he is working in his studio, creating sculptures and paintings. He created the bronze awards for the San Diego State Football Hall of fame, The University of San Diego Football Hall of Fame, the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame and the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Ed also created the Ernie Wright Memorial for the San Diego Hall of Champions. Ed's focus now, after his family, is his charitable foundation, the Oak Lake Art Center located in Harrison Park. OLAC was founded in 2003 after the Cedar Fire. The mission of the Center is to support the use of as a complementary healing tool. The Oak Lake art Center establishes and provides hands-on programs on-site and in communities to individuals suffering from .physical, emotional and mental trauma. The Center provides art classes for interested members of the community at the OLAC studio with the renowned local artist Stan Goudey mentoring. Ed and members of his Center have provided materials and classes to students from the Julian Elementary School, Julian High School and the Santa Rosa Community Day School in Borrego Springs. The OLAC team has traveled to the City of Indio Teen Center where students from Indio High School created their own masterpieces under Ed's tutelage. Our little Julian has added a star to its' constellation of noted artists. And Ed used to play a little football, too. Supervisors; Jacob, Slater-Price Want To Help Property Owners Afford The Upfront Cost Of Rooftop Solar San Diego County moved a giant step closer toward helping unincorporated area residents more easily afford rooftop solar electric systems and other energy efficiency projects. At the urging of Chairwoman Dianne Jacob and Vice Chairwoman Pam Slater-Price, the Board of Supervisors agreed unanimously to join forces with more than a dozen California counties planning to launch a statewide solar financing district. The goal is to finance installations of rooftop solar electric systems and allow property owners to pay the cost over a period of 20 years on property tax bills. The application process could begin as early as June 2010. "Our county is among the sunniest corners in the nation. Our region has not even begun to tap into the potential for rooftop solar. Upfront solar financing is going to help us chart that course," said Chairwoman Jacob who represents East County on the Board of Supervisors. The County will spend $25,000 to enroll in what is known as the CalforniaFIRST program. The effort is offered through California Communities, a joint powers authority sponsored by the League of California Cities and the California State Association of Counties. Renewable Funding LLC and RBC Capital Markets will help administer and finance the program. "We're tapping into a program that will use the strength of a statewide pool of participants to keep costs as low as possible," said Vice Chairwoman Slater-Price. "We are going to lower energy bills, cut fuel costs and clear the air at the same time." California Counties will work directly with interested homeowners to process applications, determine eligibility, and provide customer services. To lower costs, the program is seeking Federal Stimulus dollars thought grants from the California Energy Commission. A handful of local cities have expressed interest in joining the effort. CaliforniaFIRST has determined that the participation of local cities is contingent on the County's participation.

For more tips and information, visit Survey Shows Americans Want Faster Use Of Solar Energy To Help Cut Costs, Meet Energy Needs (NAPSA) - Experts say one of the least expensive sources of power is also the cleanest and most abundant "solar energy" and a recent survey found many Americans want it to become a bigger part of their lives. -- In fact, four out of five people surveyed agreed that solar energy should play a greater role in meeting the nation's energy needs in the next five years. And they are willing to pay a small price for the huge benefit that solar brings over time, Additionally, most people don't realize that solar is already cost competitive with fossil fuels in many parts of the United States. Other key points in the survey - sponsored by Applied Materials, a leading manufacturer of solar panel factories around the world - revealed: Half the people surveyed (50 percent) think the U.S. government's goal to have 25 percent of the country's power generated by renewable energy by 2025 is too slow. More than two-thirds (68 percent) think utilities should include solar electricity as a part of their energy generation. Just over half (52 percent) would be willing to pay more per month if their utility company increased its use of renewable energy. But many consumers (41 percent) would not be willing to pay more, demonstrating the important role that government incentives to bring down solar costs will have on advancement of the technology. Industrializing Solar There are still many misconceptions about solar energy, the most prevalent being cost, because many people don't understand what makes up their monthly energy bill. Peak energy costs - the energy we use in the middle of the day while the sun is shining and demand for energy spikes - is more expensive than nonpeak energy - the energy that runs our refrigerator in the middle of the night. To meet this demand each afternoon, many utility companies turn on natural gas powered "peaker plants" to supplement the coal-powered plants that provide 24/7 baseload power. However, it is at just this time when solar is at its best and is most cost-effective. Solar energy is a cost- competitive option for peak- power generation today. And the cost of solar is only going down as the technology improves and scale increases. History shows that the more installed solar capacity you have, the further costs will drop. Specifically, for every doubling of the solar installed base, the cost per watt of solar is reduced by 20 percent. Advocates say a consistent government policy would create incentives for consumers and entire communities - to go solar, helping to cut greenhouse gas emissions as it creates a new type of American-made and energy-independent green industry. Not only is solar affordable and .... t.he key to creating a more stable, clean energy future, but it has the potential to create hundreds .... of thousands of new clean tech jobs in communities across the Technicians test equipment at a solar R&D center. country.
