Rain Catchers

Stormwater runoff is a major source of pollution in our streams and lakes. Those lakes are also a source of drinking water. State law requires cities and towns to cleanup the runoff, because it doesn't get treated in sewage plants - it goes right in the lakes and rivers. Durham is launching an innovative 5 year program called 'Raincatchers' in hopes of slowing down, reducing, and naturally cleaning up stormwater.

NCSU Solar Grant

A U.S. Dept. of Energy grant will be used at North Carolina State University to design solar energy systems & installation & connection procedures that require little or no customization by homeowners & installers. The systems would set up quickly and connect to the power grid easily, while still meeting building and electrical codes. Original Broadcast Date: 04/15/2013.
