October 15, 2015 marked an important day for Georgia and the Ray C. Anderson Memorial Highway. The first step of making the Nation's first net zero corridor was launched at the Georgia State Welcome Center on the Georgia-Alabama state line in West Point, Georgia, Ray C Anderson's birthplace. A solar tree that will provide electricity from the sun to charge EV's traveling along the corridor was inaugurated. State leaders including Georgia Public Service Commissioner Tim Echols, the Mayor of West Point Georgia and leaders from Georgia Department of Transportation.
Southeast Green caught up with Harriet Langford, one of the co-trustees of the Ray C. Anderson foundation, and pioneer visionary for this exciting one-of-a-kind project.
