Two separate events focus the spotlight on solar this week. First, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is highlighting clean energy grants distributed across the state including a $46,875 award to Wampler’s Sausage in Lenoir City. The company will be hosting a press event to highlight the project as well as other East Tennessee installations at 10:30 a.m. Thursday. For more info see http://gosolar.ning.com.
