Solar Water Heater
This concentrates the rays of the sun onto a tank of water, before it enters thehouse and a regular water heater. By preheating the water, it reduces the need for the traditional water heater to power on. Go Green!
This uses the power of the sun to directly create electricity for the house. Every kilowatt produced is one that is not needed from a coal power plant. Go Green!
Similar to a solar panel, except this uses the wind to power a generator. Go Green!
This uses the sun to power a generator, indirectly. What happens is that the suns rays are concentrated on a material that retains heat for some time. The heat produced is used to power a turbine, which is what produces the electricity. This has the added benefit of continuing to work at
night and during cloudy days.
Solar Hot Tub
Who doesnt enjoy soaking in a nice hot tub? By using the sun to heat the water, you reduce the need to use electricity provided by coal power plants. Go Green!
The benefits of eating organic food are well known. Between lowering your food bill, you will also reduce the need to send waste to a dump or incinerator.
Imagine, instead of taking out a smelly bag of trash every week, you apply a nutrient rich compost mix instead. Leaving not a single mineral or vitamin to waste, it is possible to create a garden that has a net positive impact on the environment. Go Green!
Similar to a hot tub, this uses water heated by a solar water heater to provide water for the shower. It is a simple, yet effective, way to embrace green living. The beauty of this is, you can use the water from the solar water heater elsewhere Another excuse for a hot tub, perhaps? Go Green!
During winter months, fresh fruits and vegetables are either grown in a green house or shipped from another region. Save the fuel, and reduce your waste, by using a greenhouse to grow beautiful vegetables and herbs year round. Between the green smell, and the delightful taste, this is one of the best ways to beat the winter-time blues! Go Green!
During the summer, one of the least liked chores is spending time inside over a hot stove. That is one of the reasons that grilling is a popular summer pastime. This applies the same concept, but to the oven. A solar generator is used to concentrate the rays of the sun onto a single block of heat-retaining material. This is used to provide the heat needed to cook your food, outside. Go Green!
Who doesnt love fresh, organic eggs? A chicken coop is an excellent way to provide protein on a regular basis, without resorting to factory grown poultry or beef. Just be careful where the chickens go, their claws really play havoc with grass! Go Green!
Solar Pool Heater
This is another adaptation of the solar power generator, instead of producing electricity the heat is shunted into the home. This helps reduce the need for a traditional heater, thus saving resources and cold, hard cash. Go green. Go green TODAY!
