With the economy in the shape it's in and the planet running short on resources, it is more important now than ever to save on energy in every way you can think of.
Until recently, solar energy was only available to humans indirectly as it was used from fossil fuels to plants to wind power. Today, however, solar energy is available in different forms and it creates significant savings in energy in Texas, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Georgia.
Geothermal energy is energy that comes from heat naturally generated inside the earth. Rain water percolates down into the earth where it forms underground pools and subterranean rivers.
Wind power represents a clean source of renewable energy. It is an effective way to generate electricity, and some commentators believe it to be better than plants fueled by coal, water or nuclear power.
Hydropower is a renewable source of electricity. It has been used for many centuries for many different purposes. Simply put it is the generation of electricity by using the natural source of water.

A solar powered system for under $100 could easily be seen as a valid investment. This is what Earth4Energy has promised in their product distribution.
As much as those of us cheering for government assistance in the home energy efficiency industry don’t want to admit it, the Home Star program (aka ‘Cash for Caulkers’) looks like it will not make it through the legislature in 2011. In case you get asked “Why did Home Star fail?” or “Will Home Star pass in 2011?” here’s the talking points so you can sound like an expert.
We are all being pushed into energy conservation to reduce global warming. We are told that we each should be reducing our personal carbon footprint to save the planet. On top of solar panels and wind generators, we now have an explosion in magnet power generators but is magnet power truly practical for the average homeowner?
Whether to pay for an energy audit - and if so, how much - is not a simple question. The answer largely depends on your goals for the audit, the age of your home and your reason for considering the audit in the first place. Let’s take a look at the available options along with some situational recommendations to hopefully make sense of it all.
