The Knoxville Zoo hosted a solar energy presentation, which provided tips on how people can save money Saturday morning.
The presentation taught East Tennesseans about potential alternatives for cleaner and cheaper solar power. The solar company Aries Energy said people in our area could benefit from TVA's "Green Power Providers Program."
Aries Energy president Harvey Abouelata said it's a win-win for everybody.
"It brings tax credit to our community. It makes solar affordable, and helps them in the sense that we're producing power on the grid when the demand is up," said Abouelata.
Aries Energy recently installed a new system on the elephant house at the Knoxville Zoo.
