The Million Solar Roofs Initiative will save customers and the state over $6 billion while at the same time providing for our long-term energy needs and improving both our economy and our environment.
Globally, a study from Stanford University has suggested that the world could harvest five times more power from the wind than we are currently using for all purposes - if we want to.
Not only does the use of alternative energy promote a healthier environment, the reduction in traditional energy consumption truly adds up in savings over time, which is a selling point for builders and a real advantage to consumers.
Guidelines and standards provide a level playing field for all parties. Retailers, purchasing agencies and consumers must be able to evaluate the merits of solar devices based on a common set of industry-approved standards if we hope to achieve broad market penetration.
Using renewable energy means taking responsibility for our own needs. If you've started by making sure your needs are in control, your chance for success is high!
"Renewable energy works; it is as reliable as the sunrise; it will help us keep our planet habitable; and it's an excellent, cost-effective investment to make; NOW."
It is interesting to ponder what would happen if the technology industry were to invest aggressively in energy. This is an industry that invented computers and then made them so powerful and so small that today we think nothing of toting a supercomputer in a backpack.
Overall, the 'router' for power is a first step towards an energy model that is more efficient because it uses locally generated power at the highest possible efficiency. As more and more manufacturers design their electronic appliances to be DC compatible, the concept will proliferate.
Even though they admit that the road ahead is fraught with danger and difficulty, industry experts are still confident that the price of solar will be competitive within the next 10 years. When this long-awaited day finally comes, I wonder if the industry will be adequately prepared?
A Company that adopts a strategy of technological reform does not necessarily have to confront its unsustainable principles and priorities. It is not hard to imagine, for example, a company that replaces its gas-powered buses with electric ones, while continuing to use them to transport exploited workers to sweatshop factories.
If you want to have a renewable energy system you need to learn to conserve well in advance of buying the system.
A teenager should never have to plead for help from their elders. All of these concerns should be taken care of already, and taken into serious consideration. Workings towards a successful solution should be our number one priority, but it's not ... we're obviously not living in a perfect world... but don't you want to strive to get as close as you can get?
All the world really needs is a power supply that has no fuel costs, no pollution, and is available to everyone, everywhere, and relatively all at once. There is a technology which makes this possible today.
Consumers can avoid getting caught in the heat of the moment by maintaining or replacing air conditioning equipment
Living with an 'ecological consciousness' is the way of connecting with the life-giving energy of the earth and understanding that our soul and the earth are one in the same.
