CANYON DIABLO, Arizona –The George family lived without electricity in a makeshift two-bedroom dwelling with toxic railroad ties and leaky walls...

The Georges’ new home is a test for the Plateau Solar Project, a partnership started by Mark Snyder (Mark Snyder Electric) and Elsa Johnson (IINA Solutions) -- and government and corporate sponsors, including Crown Battery.
