As wallets tighten while utility bills rise, people are reluctant to open their minds or their pockets to new and innovative techniques, however, in these times, alternative energy practices may just be the solution to our environmental and economic burdens. Both these environmental and economical issues have even caught the eye of the government as President Obama’s recent stimulus package has uped the ante for sustainable energy industries to perfect their product and efficiency. What does this mean for consumers? Now is the perfect time to drop your ball and chain reliance on costly foreign oil and nonrenewable resources and switch to a new alternative energy source.
By harnessing Earth’s natural resources, we can minimize the pollutants we put in the air and eventually reverse our downward environmental spiral. By changing our energy practices in our homes and buildings we can not only reduce our carbon footprint, we can also reduce our energy bills dramatically. All around the world businesses are reaping the benefits of alternative energy sources—in Taiwan, the first solar stadium was built exhibiting 8,844 solar panels that is enough to meet the stadium’s energy needs in addition to some of its surrounding neighborhoods. With hydrogen powered street cleaners in Switzerland and wind turbine generators in a Minnesota airport, alternative energy resources are here to stay.
However, you don’t need to own a stadium or airport to utilize this energy; alternative energy can be harnessed just as efficiently in your home. Here at GreenWerks, we offer numerous solutions that can revitalize your shrinking wallets while maximizing your sustainable living practices. Installing solar panels, harnessing geothermal energy, or even installing wind turbines are some small steps that you, as a homeowner, can take to reduce your energy costs and even improve the value of your home. With the expertise of our GreenWerks team, we can help you decide on the best technology to reduce your energy consumption and maximize efficiency in your home or business.
