Everybody knows solar farms need solar sheep, but did you know solar sheep need solar dogs? And apparently, those solar dogs need solar names. That’s where you come in.
CPS Energy, the Texas utility that uses sheep to cut the grass on its solar farm so technicians can access the panels, is letting people vote on the name for its latest ecofriendly herding dog. Which makes sense: Since CPS is owned by the city of San Antonio, the pooch kind of belongs to the whole town.
A list of fine names have been provided, though I’d have trouble voting for Sunny or Crockett if they don’t also include a Tubbs. I suggested Jim Meyer since my wife won’t let me have a junior and the dog kinda has my smile, but you’re free to crush my dreams and write in your own suggestion.
Follow this link to name the mutt.
Take our poll: name the sheepdog keeping the solar “lambscapers” safe!, CPS Energy.
