Focus On: Why is Solar Energy Important to You?

Welcome to the June 2010 edition of Solar Energy Alerts!

We each have our own personal reasons for wanting to promote solar energy.

For some, their primary interest in solar energy stems from their desire to help the environment. Others are interested in saving money over the long-term. And then some people are interested in energy independence. The list can go on indefinitely...

As for me, there are several reasons why solar is important. But the driver behind all of those reasons is that solar energy can meet our energy demand and allow us to live in harmony with nature.

I describe my "Solar Energy Vision" in my About page. Here's an excerpt...

I see a future where...
  • Every home is designed with passive solar energy elements to take advantage of the Sun
  • Every home is built out of building materials that have solar technology integrated directly into the materials to efficiently capture the Sun's energy for electricity and heat
  • Every home is self-sufficient and a net energy producer
  • Energy production and use has no negative impact on the Earth
  • Homeowners can maintain a "modern" lifestyle while having a positive impact on the Earth

How about you? Why is solar energy important to you? I invite you to share your thoughts on this on a page I've created specifically for Solar-Energy-At-Home readers...
