A Eugene businessman says he’s gearing up for production of low-cost solar water heaters to be placed on the roofs of local homes by Dec. 31. After about four years of fits and starts, energy entrepreneur Peter Greenberg is ready to go with his $5,000 SunFlame residential solar water heater. This is a diversification for Greenberg, who expects $10 million in sales this year from his other business ventures, which include the sale of energy-efficient lighting for factories and government buildings globally and photovoltaic arrays on schoolhouse roofs in Oregon.
