Know what I think about the village's green-energy shift by the trustees? It's to save big money for the big buyers, primarily the village itself, with important nod toward business owners.
Hence the big push by Pres. Anan et al. for homeowners to opt for the no-longer-default-option green. Each can save as he wishes, in the process feeling he is doing the right thing; but what he or she saves is nothing compared to what big buyers, primarily the village, save by going brown.
Accident that the vote came almost unanimously to defang the green default at almost same time the most recent credit rating demotion was announced? Sure, and as TV newscaster Len O'Connor used to say as wind-up for an expose report, "And I'm the Easter bunny."
