While renewable energy is often thought of as a new technology, harnessing nature’s power has long been used for heating, transportation, lighting, and more. Wind has powered boats to sail the seas and windmills to grind grain. The sun has provided warmth during the day and helped kindle fires to last into the evening.
To fulfill the quest of being “Green” in Energy terms, one needs to start by lowering the amount of energy he/she consumes and complement that by using Energy from naturally renewable resources.
Lowering the amount of energy consumed, is normally achieved by replacing the everyday products with those which are energy efficient, like replacing the old incandescent light bulbs with the new LED super energy savers; right there one would need up to 93% less energy to get the same amount of light (not bad to start with)!
Energy generated from natural renewable resources can save the environment and save a bundle! Thanks to the magical mix of long life and low operating cost products coupled with aggressive Federal/States/Local incentive programs a very high return on Investment (ROI) can easily achieved on all Green projects making them worthwhile the efforts and investments for homeowners and businesses alike.
