Letter: Putnam Block should involve solar

To the editor:

Thanks to the Banner I was able to find the website showing the artist's drawings of proposed Putnam Block. They are very impressive, but I found that there was one thing, something I hoped to see, that was missing. There are all those solidly built and unshaded roofs but no solar panels or evidence of other sources of sustainable energy. I hoped they are planned, but just not shown in the drawings. In face of all the evidence and scientific knowledge about the consequences of global warming, it would be a shame to miss this opportunity for Bennington to set an example of meaningful and constructive development.
