Passing the Solar Buck

Another way to go solar: pass the buck to someone else. That's what UCSF did, and word on the street is they loved it. A "power purchase agreement" gets another company to take on the costs of installing and designing a renewable-energy project. In return, they get to own the finished product, and they end up selling the energy to you. UCSF's facilities director effuses: "It's very simple — we got someone else to take on the headaches, and we get the power." Easy, right? [SF Gate]
