Go Solar Energy For Life -

In short… Florida utilities say solar energy hurts the poor. The Pope says solar energy helps the poor.

Here’s a couple recent articles that support both points of view. I’ll let you draw your own conclusion.

This is music to my ears… “a global price on carbon emissions and a phase-out of fossil fuel subsidies.” Read the full story about the greenhouse gas emissions here…

Solar Energy’s Decade of Record Growth

Posted by Dan On May 21st

Here’s a wonderful video showing the amazing growth of solar energy in America.

I think a lot of people will be surprised to learn how fast solar is really growing.

According to SEIA (Solar Energy Industries Association) over the last 10 years the deployment of solar energy in the United States grew at an unprecedented rate.

In 2004 there were 500 megawatts (MW) of solar energy installed nationwide.

By the end of 2014, there were 20,000 MW – enough to power more than 4 million homes. 97 percent of that capacity was added after passage of the federal solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC).

By the end of 2016, the solar industry is expected to double in size, offsetting more than 45 million metric tons of carbon dioxide – the equivalent of taking 10 million cars off U.S. highways or shuttering 12 coal-fired power plants.

Some electric utility companies are just plain foolish… such as this one in New Mexico. It may be wise for Floridians to keep an eye on energy battles in other states… we may be fighting similar battles here, soon.

Read about New Mexico’s major crossroads when it comes to coal and planning their energy future, in the article below.

Wow! Why is that?

It’s hard to believe, but Florida utilities would have you believe solar energy is a bad thing. In contrast Georgia utilities “see solar as a friend.” Read more.

The Overview Effect

Posted by Dan On January 13th

Ok… see if you can connect the dots between astronauts who have looked back at earth from space… and solar energy.

Edgar Mitchell gives the answer about 14 and a half minutes into this short film… the “Overview Effect”.
