NegaWatts save you money.

Want to lower your electric bills? Well, lets start by understanding the term”Negawatt”, I promise this is going to be worth your time because you’ll save thousands of dollars during your lifetime on electric expenses if you can wrap your mind around the concept. Negawatt power is a term promoted and introduced by Amory Lovins of The Rocky Mountain Institute means investing in energy efficiencies to reduce electrical consumption rather then investing in extra generation capacity can actually support the growth of electric supply by improving the efficiencies of appliances, homes or businesses rather then constructing a new power plant. In simple terms it means by saving energy, we create a “virtual power plant “, thus not having to create a new power plant to increase electrical supply. The reduction in electrical demand is called a Negawatt For example, If the World banned all incandescent light bulbs (which are very inefficient) and only sold LED light bulbs, which is high efficient lighting, it would create a significant increase in our power supply because the demand would significantly drop. The world would create Negawatts of electricity without creating a new power plant! Taking this theory into practice in your own home or business, its always more affordable to “reduce then produce”. Solar Panels typically have a high upfront cost, but you could buy less solar panels to cover your electrical generation needs If you focused on Negawatts, energy efficiency first. There are tons of projects you can do everything from fixing the air leaks, better insulation, LED lighting, programming your thermostat, and even conducting a do-it-yourself energy audit. Producing Negawatts could be as simple as making a life style change such as developing a habit to turn the lights off when you leave the room. Please share some methods of how you produce...

Reduce the upfront cost of going solar!

One of the most common complaints about “going solar” is that the upfront cost is just too high. The primary reasons a solar power system can be a high ticket purchase for many solar power shoppers is because of the customers bad energy usage habits. The majority of solar power shoppers don’t realize they are energy hogs until they start shopping for solar power which forces them to understand and analyze their electric consumption. So how can Solar Power shoppers instantly get a deep discount on their solar power system? The answer is simple, “reduce then produce.” Focusing on energy efficiency, and implementing lifestyle and product changes can greatly reduce the upfront cost of a solar power system. It is always more cost effective to reduce your consumption through efficiency than it is to produce your own power. Think of it this way, the more you can save through energy efficiency the less solar panels you need to cover your electric usage, its that simple, but most solar power consumers get frustrated seeing high upfront costs of going solar and think there are no alternatives to bring the cost down. How do you reduce your energy consumption? A good start (and cheapest) is to change all your light bulbs to CFLs or LEDs, insulation can help reduce your energy by keeping the house cool during summer and warm in the winter, thus significantly reducing your yearly energy usage. Get rid of old appliances which hog and waste energy. Unplug unused items (they draw energy even if they are plugged in, but not in use), set your computers to automatically hibernate (power saving mode) when they are idle for more than 5 minutes. Purchase energy star appliances and most importantly turn off the lights when you leave a room. Changing the way you consume energy can have a significant impact on the overall price of a solar energy system, practicing reducing energy consumption can shave off thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars off the final cost of a system. Energy Efficiency and Solar Power fit very well with each other, so when considering solar power, think about how easy ways you can reduce your consumption first, you’ll be saving tons of...

reduce and then produce clean energy

I talk to many consumers looking to go solar everyday and most consumers shopping for solar energy are concerned about the large upfront costs associated with producing clean green energy. Although what most consumers don’t think about is the underlying cause of why a solar power system costs so much. What consumers don’t realize is they have the ability to lower the final price by thousands of dollars on a sales quote for a solar power system just by reducing their energy consumption. How do you reduce your energy consumption? A good start (and cheapest) is to change all your light bulbs to CFLs or LEDs, insulation can help reduce your energy by keeping the house cool during summer and warm in the winter, thus significantly reducing your yearly energy usage. Get rid of old appliances which hog and waste energy. Unplug unused items (they draw energy even if they are plugged in, but not in use), set your computers to automatically hibernate (power saving mode) when they are idle for more than 5 minutes. Purchase energy star appliances and most importantly turn off the lights when you leave a room. Changing the way you consume energy can have a significant impact on the overall price of a solar energy system, practicing reducing energy consumption can shave off thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars off the final cost of a system. The great clean energy system installers will always recommend reducing consumption. If you can’t figure out how to reduce your energy usage, some system installers will even perform an energy audit for...
