Cities all over the US are moving quickly to 100% renewable energy and municipal power companies. But not Louisville under Fischer – not in our buildings or our transportation.
The electrical needs of Jackie Green’s home are supplied by solar panels. He also installed an 8.5 kW solar array on one of the 100 year old buildings he owns. He has applied for the Landmarks Certificate of Appropriateness & Overlay District Permit for Louisville’s first car-free / transit rich mixed use redevelopment on Frankfort Avenue ( https://frankfortcrossing.com/ ). He has been car-free since 1999, and owns Louisville’s only urban bicycle shop.
Unlike Fischer, Jackie Green is committed to green energy.
