Hidden Plainfield: May 8 IDs

The lower house remained a stumper.

The lone guess on yesterday's Hidden Plainfield quiz got the upper home correct -- it is on West 8th Street, directly across from Hubbard Middle School.

The other home is on Everett Place, off West Front Street, near the old Mack plant. This home's solar panels have been in place since at least the winter of 2009-10, when I first spotted them.

While it's true that rooftop solar panels present aesthetic challenges, they are hardly worse than those terminally ugly panels PSE&G is mounting on telephone poles, which are drawing increasingly acid comment.

Where shall we go next week?

Dan: I'm a great believer in alternative energy. Reggie and I had our house checked for solar panels 30 years ago but didn't have the right exposure. Please point out that anyone living in an historic district should check with the HPC before proceeding. And the HPC tried to fight those ugly PSE&G things, to be told it's up to the state, not the municipality. A recent NYT article, however, showed some towns have at least limited them.
