Cape Lookout National Seashore is going green.  The park holds a ribbon cutting on May 16th to acknowledge a new photovoltaic system that provides renewable power to the remote barrier island.  Until now, the historic site was powered by a combination of diesel generators and shore power.  Now, the lighthouse area and keeper's quarters are entirely off the grid and independent of fossil fuel energy.  This week, Jared Brumbaugh speaks with maintenance supervisor Steve Sabol about the new solar project which went online last month.
