Solar power fuels fun center on wheels

“This is the future of energy,” said Taylor High School student Jacob Bishop, 16. “One day, everyone's house will have solar panels on the rooftops. I just believe that's going to happen because these fossil fuels aren't going to work forever.”

In the small Central Texas town of Taylor, high school students are harnessing solar power to fuel an entertainment center in a donated van.

Just one example of how Solar can be installed affordably, and bring in much needed energy savings! Great work Skyline Innovations!

APAH recently installed solar panels on one buildingat Columbia Grove Apartments to reduce hot water heating costs. The panels were funded in part by a grant from the Virginia Department of Minerals and Mines. Skyline Innovations installed 60 solar panels, serving 6 buildings (88 units) at Columbia Grove. We expect to save $5,000 a year for the first 10 years and then $10,000 a year after that. (Savings for the first 10 years is shared with the installer.)

The bi-partisan New York Solar Jobs Act is making its way through Albany. Its passage would mean gigawatts-worth of new solar development, tens of thousands of green jobs and billions in local economic output. But naysayers are doing all they can to derail the bill.

A MUST read. I love finding these, little gold nuggets of inspiration spawned by thinking smart about our society and environment. There's no end to how beneficial and prosperous converting our post-industrial era, Eco-social relics into simplified ways of being. It's not hard to imagine how the green economy will bring these prosperous times upon us.

Up on the Roof

Think going solar isn't affordable? Think again.

The best reason to start harvesting all that free sunshine that's falling on your rooftop is that each kilowatt hour of solar you generate either replaces electricity that might otherwise come from burning a fossil fuel like coal or natural gas. And if you charge an EV or plug-in hybrid vehicle at h...
