Good Neighbors Build Solar Powered Habitat House

WAYNESBORO, Va -- A Habitat for Humanity home in our area will be the first built by the organization to be powered by the sun's energy.

Ten solar panels were installed at the constrcution site on Kirby Avenue in Waynesboro.

The panels are being provided by Sigora Solar.

Installation would have normally cost over them $12,000.

The family says this will help them save a lot of money.

"At the end of the day, it's going to be a money maker as far as saving us things we can do more with our money versus us spending it on a high utility bill," said Charitta Bryant, who will be receiving the house, "we'll also be able to keep track of how much we save, usage wise, and help out with other families, just to see that it really does work."

The house is expected to be completed some time in October.
