Are you in love with solar energy?

Are you in love with your energy source?

A strange question, isn’t it?

Strange because:
a)    more than likely, you don’t know where your energy comes from, and
b)    even if you did know, what’s love got to do with it?

What I mean is, do you feel good about where your energy comes from?

I know you like the energy you use. That’s not the question. Electricity and gasoline have given many people around the world a wonderful life. Both are taken for granted. You use them without having to think much about it. Plugging in your cell phone or laptop is about the most effort you have to do. Filling up at the convenience store is all it takes to go anywhere you want to go. But these conveniences have a source… and a price… that is not often considered… which I won’t get in to here.

Do you know where your energy comes from?

Do you know where your electricity and gas come from?

And, assuming you do know, are you in love with your energy source?

After 35 years in the solar industry, I know I am in love with the sun.

When you get connected to the sun, in a real way, something fundamental changes in your head… or is it your heart?

You satisfy an unconscious desire to be at one. It’s an alignment… or perhaps an atonement.

At its core, solar energy is in alignment with all life.
And because of that, solar energy is an energy source that can be loved.

Solar energy has incredible universal appeal!

Kilowatt Ours - an excellent movie!

“Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach Sand Removal
to Provide Clean Energy to West Virginia!”

How would you like it if the beaches of Florida were dug up to provide energy for West Virginia?

Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?

Unfortunately, this is, in essence, what Florida is doing to West Virginia.
A significant portion of the energy Florida uses is produced by coal from West Virginia. The coal is “mined” by blowing up mountains!

The people of West Virginia don’t really like their mountains being destroyed.
The question is… do you care?

If so, what are you going to do about it?

Kilowatt Ours

Once you watch this movie, Kilowatt Ours, you’ll understand:

•    where does most of your energy comes from?
•    what harm does it cause?
•    what are your options?

Oh, and by the way, here's another interest related resource I found recently:

Have a great day,
