Question of the Week: Why are you or aren’t you buying green power?

2008 May 27

Each week we ask a question related to the environment. Please let us know your thoughts as comments. Feel free to respond to earlier comments or post new ideas. Previous questions.

Do you, your community, or your business purchase “green power“? If so, are you doing so voluntarily and how did you choose your electricity or gas provider? Are you happy with the results and the price you pay? Good return on investment? If you’re not, why not? Too much trouble? Not enough info available?

Why are you or aren’t you buying green power?

En español: Cada semana hacemos una pregunta relacionada al medio ambiente. Por favor comparta con nosotros sus pensamientos y comentarios. Siéntase en libertad de responder a comentarios anteriores o plantear nuevas ideas. Preguntas previas.

¿Acaso usted, su comunidad o su negocio compra “energía verde”? De ser así, ¿lo hace de manera voluntaria y cómo escogió su proveedor de servicio eléctrico/gas? ¿Está contento con los resultados del precio que usted paga? ¿Buenos réditos por la inversión? Si no está contento, ¿por qué no? ¿Es demasiado oneroso? ¿No hay demasiada información disponible?

¿Por qué está o no está comprando energía verde?

    I have been really thinking about using solar power for my home, but it really comes down to evaluating the solar power cost of installing it and the labor versus the output. It takes a bit amount of work, but in the long run I will probably take on the project.

    The easiest way to install a solar power system is to purchase a solar power kit that includes all of the materials that you need to complete a full system.

    All electricity still comes primarily from coal with a small percentage of nuclear, coal is the source of may diseases such a renal cell carcinoma metastasis. But green power has a bright future if it’s developed.
