Our Solar Roadways Visit

Nancy and I had the great pleasure of meeting Scott and Julie Brusaw of Solar Roadways in Sandpoint, ID this last week while vacationing.

They graciously spent an hour showing us how they make their panels and answering all of our questions about how they work.

I was very excited to see their technology, first hand, and learn about their new applications for homes.

We were amazed to learn that every panel is installed by hand right now and to hear about how they plan to someday automate their installation process.

It is definitely something we plan to keep an eye on and we are proud to share the industry with such innovative people. 

They have a brilliant concept here that could completely transform the future! 

To learn more about what they do and how their product works, check out their website here or follow their blog here

Sustainable Future: The Green School In Bali

Imagine learning in an environment that's giving its students a relevant, holistic, green education in one of the most amazing environments on the planet (along with being completely off of the power grid!)

That's exactly what John Hardy, and his wife, Cynthia envisioned a few short years ago as they made this dream a reality in Bali, Indonesia...

At the Green School, kids learn in open-air classrooms surrounded by acres of gardens that they tend; they learn to build with bamboo; and meanwhile they're being prepared for traditional British school exams. The school is international -- 20 percent of students are Bali locals, some on scholarship. The centerpiece of the campus is the spiraling Heart of School, which may be called Asia's largest bamboo building.

Learn more about John Hardy, and view his presentation of exactly how the school was created, and the materials used used.

It's truly amazing! 

Looking to have some fun with the Internet?

Try to find the Bali Green School using Google Earth!   The beautiful swirling rooftops are unmistakable. Be sure to let me know if you find it, too. :)

Here's to the future - as bright as it will be!

Less Harm, More Harmony~
