Volunteers installed 12 solar panels to the Neely home west of Ashland. They were able to learn how solar energy works and assists in saving the environment for future generations.

Ashland — Volunteers eager to learn about solar energy came from as far away as Memphis, Tenn., to lend a hand in a solar raising, an event sponsored by the nonprofit solar advocacy group, Show Me Solar.

They shared knowledge, talked politics and enjoyed a vegetarian lunch with fresh produce from Ron and Irene Neely’s garden Saturday.  The Neelys added 2.4 kilowatts of capacity to their current solar array.
