Is The Time Right For A Personal Revolution?

Are you tired of waiting for someone to solve the energy problem?

If you’re like me, you might be ready to take matters into your own hands.

But even though you feel ready, you might still be holding back a little.

Well, if that’s the case, I suggest you take a look at “The Cost of Doing Nothing”… an interesting 5 minute video produced by the Florida Solar Energy Center:

You can learn what really happened because we chose to do nothing by reading this article from Renewable Energy World.

So… do you think we’re at our Sputnik Moment?

Or… to make it a little more personal… are YOU at your Sputnik Moment?

If you are, you don’t have to wait anymore...

Take matters into your own hands!
It’s time for a personal revolution!

Declare your own Energy Independence… and make it happen for YOU!

Is Florida "FIT" for Solar?

Is Florida "FIT" for Solar?

Like many, you may feel that solar energy remains a distant dream, and that it's:

    • too expensive to afford, or
    • too hard to implement.

Feed In Tariffs (FIT) could change all of that...

FIT could bring the use of solar energy to life for MILLIONS of people in the US.

What is FIT?

FIT (Feed In Tariff) is an incentive structure to encourage the adoption of renewable energy through government legislation.  Basically, the government offers home and business owners payments for electricity they feed into the electric grid.

Germany developed a FIT program in 1999 and because of that they are now the #1 photovoltaic country in the world… with 50% of the world’s photovoltaic market!

The good news?

FIT incentives are now starting to gain momentum in North America.

Gainesville, Florida was the 1st city in U.S. to implement FIT policies.

In their program, the Gainesville utility pays home owners $.32/kWh for energy that is fed into the grid, read about it here.

And everyone is watching to see what can be learned from them.

And Ontario’s new Green Energy Act pays a whopping .80/kWh!  That's amazing!  Learn more by reading this News Release.

The Florida Alliance of Renewable Energy (FARE) is a grassroots organization leading the way in Florida in support of FIT incentives… although, in Florida, FIT is called RED (Renewable Energy Dividends).

Both the State of Florida and the U.S. Congress are debating the benefits of FIT programs.  If you want to learn more or help spread the word, go to the Florida Alliance for Renewable Energy.

FIT programs will help solar energy become a dream come true for millions of people in the U.S!
