Someone once mentioned "It's not easy being green." With skyrocketing energy prices, strained energy infrastructure, and an ever growing consumer demand during a sweltering summer, its almost not a choice not to make some changes in lifestyle for greener living.
So it's welcome relief to hear about a local Los Angeles business taking the initiative to green their operation like the good folks at Valley Car Wash in Van Nuys (just a mile away from my offices). A newly installed $677,000 rooftop photovoltaic system provides supplementary operational power, for which Valley Car Wash received a 42% rebate for their progressive investment in solar power. So next time you're in the Valley and need to wash that home away from home, your auto, give the people at Valley Car Wash your green thumbs up and your business.
