By Ric Romero, ABC Channel 7 News:  Would you put solar power in your home if you only had to pay a fraction of the cost? One homeowner did and he’s now saving plenty on his electric bill while helping out the environment at the same time.

Stephen Mark tells me he’s really trying to save energy. He recently installed energy saving appliances and lights in his Santa Monica home.

He drives a hybrid car, and his yard is being converted into drought tolerant plantings, but his latest environmental move was to put in solar power.

“I feel good that I’m not drawing from the coal power plants,” said Stephen.
