Senator favors big oil over renewable energy

The root problem of our energy problems are due to Senators who we have elected to represent the people, who turn against the people and represent special interests. A great example of a Senator who has his head shoved up his you know what is Nevada’s Republican senator John Ensign. John has launched an opposition against the solar energy lobbyist who are trying to get the renewable energy tax credit, which is set to expire at the end of this year extended. The Senator has an extremely bad voting record towards extending the federal tax credits for people who buy renewable energy for their home or business. The loss of this tax credit can cause the whole industry to collapse, put billions of dollars of investment at risk and put hundreds of thousands of people in the solar and wind industry out of a job in 2009. The Senator is against the tax credits for renewable energy because he said it would take away tax breaks from the oil & gas industry. Does this guy not realize that Nevada has more free energy falling from the sky everyday compared to anywhere else in the world? Why do we continue to elect such ignorant people into our government? Obviously, we have an energy problem, the rest of the world knows it but why is Senator Ensign so against solar panels and wind power? The bottom line is he supports big business, centralized power and high gas prices. Someone should let this guy know that if we could fully capture one hours worth of sunlight, we can power the entire world for a year. The sun has that much untapped power, here we’re drilling for a solution to our energy problems when the solution is obvious, look up its in the sky. Please contact senator john ensign and tell him what you think!!! We need the message to go through to the people who put roadblocks in front of renewable...

94% of Americans feel its important to use solar energy.

Wake up members of congress, we’re heading deep into an energy crisis, and Americans are sick of the lack of support for renewable energy, according to SCHOTT Solar Barometer , an independent poll was conducted across all party lines (democrats, republicans and independents). The results clearly favored that American clearly want to develop and use solar energy. The majority of the respondents agreed that the use of Solar Energy is vital to the future of the United States and should be the federal government’s TOP priority. The respondents were asked if they were President, which energy source would they support, and the answers were overwhelmingly favored towards solar and wind power, In fact 20 times more favored than coal. So, why is there such a great disconnect from what the people want and what congress is doing? The renewable energy investment tax credit is expiring at the end of this year and Bush has threated to veto it if the tax credit is extended for renewable energy. With rasing energy prices and our slumping economy, renewable energy not only lowers our energy expenses and helps us become more energy indepedent but it keeps jobs at home, it situmlates our economy here at home. If you reseach how Germany came out of their last recession, it was by investing in their renewable energy program which created jobs and pulled the country out of a recession. Now Germany is the world leader in renewable energy, moving forward this was the best move they could have made due to the power play for energy...

Unleashing solar power to the people.

Dave McCoy, Founder of the Unleash Power for the People, a Non-Profit organziation helping schools in developing nations with their electrical needs, is soon headed to Banquet, Philippines to donate an off-grid solar power system to a school that has never had access to power. The 1.5 kilowatt offgrid solar panel system will provide the school with at least 30 years of clean green power. GoGreenSolar.com worked closely with the Unleash Power for the People organization to help design and package a system that meets the target budget of the organization and help the non-profit with its logical issues. This is a great project for GoGreenSolar.com to be involved in because it has such a great impact around the world. According to Dave, through this first project, they have recieved interest from schools all over the world who have no access to power. The organization is developing chapters from all over the world to keep up with the demand of schools that need power. The organization has raised $8,300 of its target of $20,000, although since Dave is so commited to his mission of helping schools and a sucessful first project, he is personally making a donation to cover the rest of the balance to make the project a realitity. His dedication to helping the unfortunate and renewable energy is commendable! Solar Power systems make an excellent donation not only because they allow people to experience what we take for granted, reliable power, but help the people learn about an important skill of sustainbility. With the world in a power play for energy resouces helping the future realize the benefits of solar panels and clean energy in general can be on of the best investments we can make for the future of human kind. If you want to help the organziation reach its charitbale goals, donate...

IBM – From Trash to Solar Power Gold

Big Blue, the king of manufacturing computer processors and cooling silicon based computer chips has turned a wasteful process into gold. As you may know that the semiconductor industry uses massive amounts of silicon, a critical element that a solar panel is made up of to turn sunlight into electricity. According to their press release, IBM estimates that approximately three million silicon wafers worldwide are scrapped each year by the semiconductor industry – representing a significant solar recycling opportunity: 3 million wafers: Stretch for 375 miles if placed end-to-end Cover 22.5 acres of area Weigh 187.5 tons Generate 13.5 megawatts of solar energy Produce 57 million kilowatt hours in solar panels (12-hour day x 365 days) Power 6,000 houses (9,500 kWh per year per house) One of the primary reasons the cost of solar panels are so high is scarcity of refined silicon. Since silicon is such a highly demanded substance, there is not enough refinery capacity to keep up with demand. IBM has developed a process to recuperate wasted silicon and turn them into solar cells! They’re turning trash into solar power, how innovative for a computer company. It seems like these days the most talented companies and minds in the business world are jumping into the solar power industry to propel the industry to new heights. Video: IBM Pioneers Process to Turn Waste into Solar...

Energy efficiency hits the Famous Santa Monica Pier ferris wheel

Aside from the fact that the Santa Monica Pier ferris has been a staple of Los Angeles, they don’t call it famous for nothing. The ferris wheel has been featured in Hollywood hit movies, music videos and is not only the most famous ferris wheel in the world but its the most energy efficient. Its the only solar powered ferris wheel in the entire world, Santa Monica has an abundance of solar resources, pacific park understands how to take advantage of solar power and now energy efficiency. Solar Panels that power the ferris wheel is old news, but the recent upgrade to LED bulbs that light up the ferris wheel is now saving the pacific park even more money by reducing their power consumption. Becoming more energy efficient now allows the ferris wheel to maximize on its solar power system more effectively. Combining solar panels with energy efficiency lighting is the best value a solar power system can offer but very rarely accomplished. If you’re considering solar panels, pairing up LED lighting with a solar electric system can be one of the best moves you can make. LED lights have a lifetime of over 10 years, do not contain harmful mercury like CFL light bulbs and use the faction of power a CFL or Incandescent uses. LED lights produce less heat and have a brighter output compared to older lighting technology. LED is the future of lighting and the famous Santa Monica Pier is leading the...
