"In late 2017, Ashley Telkes gazed across the sunlit woods adjacent to her home near Boston, Massachusetts. The sunny day reminded her of the decision she needed to make regarding her home. A marine biologist, Telkes was acutely aware of the impact that modern society was having on the environment and, to this end, she had tried to be cognizant of her own impact on the environment. Since purchasing her home, Telkes had pursued a number of passive measures to minimize her “carbon footprint,” including re-insulating the roof and walls, opting for ceiling fans instead of air conditioning, and replacing incandescent lights with energy efficient LED bulbs. However, she was now confronted with a much bigger decision: whether or not to invest in solar panels to generate electricity for her home."
