In this week's edition of the WORD Cover Story we take a look at solar energy and how businesses use it to become more carbon neutral and save money as well as what some electric companies think of it. I caught up with Jeff Redderson, the Assistant VP of Facilities and Campus Services for Furman, to find out about their newly operational solar farm.

In speaking with Jeff I learned that there is a sustainability major at Furman so I spoke with the associate director of sustainability assesment at the David E. Shi Center, Laura Bain, to learn how the solar farm ties in with the sustainability curriculum and what a major in that field means for students.
