'Green' definition needs clarity
For too long now you have been misleading some of your readers who can't see through the fallacy that solar panels alone make you "green." No sincere, educated person would classify someone powering their inefficient, super-sized home with 170 panels as "green." On the contrary. Green is much deeper and holistic than that. By suggesting that solar panels alone make you green is incredibly naive and borders on greenwashing. Please give us a little more depth and practice responsible journalism by giving us a more accurate headline (e.g., Solar panels vs. Ocean Views) and maybe educate the public in the process. You should avoid indicating something is green unless some authority such as Energy Star, the United States Green Building Council, both of which can certify homes as "green" for example, have certified that something as green. Otherwise you are greenwashing and doing a disservice to the Pilot reading public. Measurable standards for green have been established to avoid exactly the typed of misinformation you are providing as to what green is.
