This absolutely has to be the silliest endorsement for solar power we have ever seen. There are forces trying out there trying to get President Obama to turn the White House completely green with solar panels but that just hasn't happened yet. We know he wanted to do that eventually but certainly he has had other, more important things on his mind the last four years. Here's hoping Bo's own inaugural party given by Rooftop Revolution will be the hint his owner needs.
Visit the site that planned and provided the party for the First Dog last week. While you are there you can sign a petition to help get those panels up on the White House roof.
It looks like some U.S. solar companies are finally getting it right. California's Sungevity has secured $40 million in venture funding in addition to $85 million for financing residence installation. The company joins SolarCity and other companies that continue to make a profit, helping to improve the energy's somewhat spotty reputation. Potential customers can lease equipment with the results of reducing dependence on foreign oil, easing the planet's carbon footprint and, best of all, costing nothing upfront while saving money in the long run.
We have to admit that the company's Solar 101 video is pretty convincing. Contact Sungevity to get a free iQuote and find out more.
It's never too early to plan for Earth Day, even if the annual event will not take place until April 22. The people behind the org have been busy, most recently sending a letter to Prez Obama and encouraging him to keep up his alternative energy policies. Their efforts have led to over a billion acts of green from supporters.
More than a billion people also participate in the annual event and since its founding in 1970, the group has never given up on its plan to help save the planet. If you have never participated in one, find out what is going on in your part of the country, make a pledge or two and donate to one of the hardest working organizations in existence.
