Solar Power

west_gardenerJanuary 10, 2012

I've read that our sun will burn out in about 5 billion years and when that happens the earth will die. It seems that the scientists found a huge solar system in space. (See the link below). Now if we humans can find a way to plug in and harness that solar power, we(humans) can live for a long time on earth.

We are novices in using solar power in our day, but we're getting there, step by step.

Tesla had plans for solar power, it is the best direction to take in my opinion.

As an aside, Tesla had a fire in their battery testing building this morning. The fire sprinklers doused the fire. We have more work to do on this solar power issue.

But homeowners don't have to wait.

Double and triple caulk every seam; shrink wrap windows, keep
southern exposure window blinds open to let the sun in,
read up on passive solar collection and find ways to install it in your home.

You would be surprised.

We had most of our windows and doors replaced with double paned glass. It is amazing how much of a difference it makes. It has saved us a lot of $$, on heating and cooling. In addition it cuts down the outside noise.
