The Right to Sunlight: Solar vs. Redwood Trees--KQED QUEST radio report

In Silicon Valley, a battle between neighbors has turned into a different kind of face off: solar energy versus trees. It turns out that growing redwood trees can actually be a crime in California, if they block solar panels... as one couple in Sunnyvale found out the hard way. David Gorn reports on a new kind of legal battle -- the struggle over who has the right… to sunlight.

Listen to the program.

QUEST is a TV, radio, web, and education series by KQED that explores science, environment and nature in Northern California.
