NAFTC Studios' plan to open a state-of-the-art film studio in Lakeshore, Ontario is revitalized thanks to the inclusion of a 500 kW solar power plant. The proposed studio failed to meet provincial and municipal standards back in 2005 and the project was put on hold - until now.
In this article I'll show you how to untether from the grid, and avoid a smelly, noisy, fuel consuming generator except in extreme weather conditions. It can be pricey for a good system, but you'll have minimal ongoing expenses, unlike fuel and maintenance on a generator. The less power you consume, the less power you will need to generate, keeping the system costs down. It's important to start with conservation.
From a materials perspective, racking represents roughly 5-10% of the system cost. That said, the labor required to install the modules on the racking system costs twice as much as the racking material involved and can account for up to 66% of the total installed cost of a system. According to expert industry analysts, the speed and ease of installation for the racking system can directly impact roughly 40% of the total installed cost.
Between 2006 - 2010 Ballard Power Systems and its consortium partners developed the next generation of zero- emission fuel cell buses for deployment by BC Transit.

To date, SolarAid has installed over 150 rural solar systems in Africa and plans to double this number in the coming year. With only a small fraction of people living in rural Africa currently enjoying access to electricity, SolarAid is planning to increase the scale of its work so that it can reach as many people as possible and continue to contribute towards the growth of solar market in Africa.
Understand that Green is profitable from Day 1 when quantifiable Savings exceed project's Finance Costs. For example, verifiable Energy and/or Water savings equal $ 1 per month; while financing that project costs anything less than $ 1 per month. Focus on projects with fast Payback Period, double-digit ROI, and Tax Incentives.

European Parliament Adopts Binding Energy Efficiency Target Requiring 20 Percent Savings in Energy Use by 2020
If the 20 percent target is met, according to the European Commission, households could save up to €1,000 each on energy bills, while the European Union (EU) as a whole could save some €100 billion and reduce emissions by almost 800 million tons a year.
Oil tycoon T. Boone Pickens' TV commercials blasted the airwaves in 2008 with his big idea to get America off foreign oil imports: natural gas and wind energy. Two years later, let’s just make that natural gas. Since the billionaire’s plans for the world’s largest wind farm fell apart in the Texas Panhandle, Pickens has edited his much-hyped “Pickens Plan” to focus primarily on his other big business interest: natural gas. Touting 1.7 million Pickens Plan supporters, he’s now pushing Congress to pass legislation that would offer incentives to convert 18-wheelers and fleet vehicles to run on compressed natural gas, or CNG, rather than diesel. He said if just 8 million of those trucks switch to the domestic-produced fuel, it could cut in half the amount of foreign oil imported by the United States. “I’m all American,” Pickens said on Friday. “Any energy in America beats importing.” The businessman said he is now looking to Canada as a place to build his 500-megawatt wind farm, because he couldn’t get a deal done in Texas.
