A Different Look at Solar Power

A Different Look at Solar PowerMany home owners across the country are considering green energy as a solution to their energy needs. What many will find is that green energy such as wind, and solar, may come with a very costly price tag. Although these systems pay for themselves they may not be a feasible solution for the people that need them the most. Now more than ever home owners need to be aware of their bottom line, and the attainability of going green. Research suggests that home owners need to change the way they think about solar energy. Many homeowners believe that a solar panel system will supply their energy needs. While this is true, the cost of that system may very well be more than $20,000.00. With credit tight and energy costs across the country on the rise Americans need a viable solution that won't send them in to bankruptcy. While the sun and the wind can supply many of our energy needs we as homeowners must make a choice to change the way we use that energy. Changing the way we use energy may very well negate the cost of buying a solar panel system. After interviewing many home owners who live off grid I can tell you that all of them had the same thing in common. They all reduced the amount of energy they used. It is easier to conserve electrical energy than it is to make it from the sun. It is also cheaper to do so. Changing the way you use electricity may lower your bill enough to make the high price of a solar power system unnecessary. You could effectively change the way you heat your homes hot water and eliminate a portion of your energy bill further. [read the rest]

5 Ways I Got My Kids To Go Green

5 Ways I Got My Kids To Go GreenMy children are not so different from any other across the country. They like out door sports, they like shows on television, they have a Wii. Just like adults they like to see some tangible reward for their efforts. When we began to go green as a family it was hard to convince the kids that it was worth it. While they don't understand any impact our lifestyle has to a global community, they do understand the concept of money. We knew as parents that if we wanted to make big changes there must be some goal to work towards, and a prize for reaching that goal. We are good stewards of the land. Our family enjoys several camping, rafting and hiking trips a year. The children know that trash doesn't belong in animal habitats and when they see it they pick it up. The same goes for our community. When we are out on evening walks we make sure to pick up after ourselves and others. Through this experiment we were able to teach the children the importance of recycling. In their own way they know that, if everyone recycles, there will be more coloring pages to color. They also know that if you collect enough aluminum cans, you can take a family of 8 to Six Flags for the weekend. [read the rest]
