To be GREEN or not to be GREEN
I have had many wonderful discussions recently around what exactly qualifies as GREEN Power and does it make for a viable & economical residential power solution?
As stated in a prior post (GREEN Independence!) I’ve personally just installed a Solar and Wind Turbine solution on my home. For me, I can’t say I’ve made a distinct opinion as of yet of what qualifies GREEN Power (besides the obvious Solar, Wind, Hydro), but what I do know is it has been working reliably, economical, (when you consider the government incentives, rebates, and net savings) and downright fun!
What are your thoughts on what qualifies as GREEN Power?
It’s a fact that the production of solar panels globally is increasing while the cost per watt is decreasing. It’s also interesting to observe the amount of capital that is being invested & allocated to GREEN Power in military and private sector within the last 6 months. I also found a recent poll to be pretty surprising in that the poll results showed 1 in 4 Americans plan would like to install solar.
In short, we all won’t be giving up our coffee makers anytime soon (we want to maintain our quality of life), and not all sources of power generation have the same environmental benefits and costs (we may want to be GREEN, but does it make $ sense). Maybe the timing isn’t right for society? (or is it?)
Is GREEN Power a viable & economical solution for residential use? Do you currently use solar, wind, or any other alternative energy solution on your residence? If you don’t… have you considered it?
