Opinion: Solar panels would make sense for roof of town hall

Driving into Middlebury from Cornwall on Route 30 I am confronted by the very large roof of the new Middlebury town hall, facing south. I just hope that the Middlebury selectmen are future thinking enough to have planned to insert solar panels on that space.
Fossil fuels are non-renewable. Thus, the world and the U.S. are running out of these energy sources. In about 100 years they will be gone, and solar, wind, geothermal, hydro and nuclear will be our main sources. It is not too early to start adjusting whenever possible.
Dave Van Vleck, Cornwall
