Because of the American Dream.
We have seen that centralized energy, power, and food doesn't work. We must develop markets that foster renewable energy development and innovation at the neighborhood level, and by virtue of membership, become active members of the local and global energy markets, both renewable and conventional.
It is clear that in the area of conventional energy supply, resource availability and volatility are the primary factors for much of our financial and environmental stress.
Contrary to this, renewable energy systems, such as those made possible by geothermal, solar, and wind technology, in our own neighborhoods, makes possible the goals of resource predictability and efficient local distribution.
In our own neighborhoods we can make an investment in an energy supply that includes a resource, generation, transmission and distribution chain, that is located exactly where the power is consumed--in our homes and local businesses.
By accomplishing these goals, we will bring about the following results:
What exactly is renewable energy?
Solar Thermal Energy
Solar Electric Energy
Renewable Energy is vital for homes, schools, farms, neighborhoods and local businesses.
