Staunton City Councilman writes book on solar energy

By  | 

STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- Staunton City Councilman, Erik Curren is promoting solar energy through his new book called, "The Solar Patriot".

"I'd love to see government use more solar power. And there are several solar companies in this area that I think would be happy to work with not just Staunton but all the communities in the Valley, Harrisonburg and everybody else," said Curren. "To help this area get ahead on the solar revolution."

Curren said the book was written to reach a general audience of ordinary citizens, it's about solar power and the American Revolution.

"I argue that American patriots today should take inspiration from the Revolutionaries of 1776 to win today's clean energy revolution," Curren said.

Several businesses in Staunton currently use solar energy and Curren hopes to help expand that to more businesses.

Curren plans meet with those interested in the book at Black Swan Books at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, to talk about his book and solar energy.
