Micro, nano, and craft breweries are on the rise, and that’s important for a variety of reasons like revitalizing local economies. However, one of the most important elements they bring is their sustainable operations. Brewing takes a lot of water and energy, and they recognize that their businesses depend on access to good resources. The American Brewers Association even provides sustainability manuals for interested parties.
The 30 percent solar tax credit does not apply to non-profits, and most grants for non-profits to purchase solar are no longer operating. However, a few remain at the federal, state, and city levels. Some are even offered by your utility company. Here are a few grants for non-profits still in operation.
How do I know my house is right for solar?
Dear Mr. Unsure,
Though Icon Solar briefly discusses the matter of whether your house can be solarized on the website, I, Wanda your Wealth Warrior, wanted to clarify a few things including sun exposure and restrictions.
Drew Boyd & Jacob Goldenberg recognized a pattern in innovation to create a systematic approach: Subtraction, Division, Multiplication, Task Unification and Attribute Dependency. They call it the Systematic Inventive Thinking, or SIT. We’re doing a series of how solar technologies approach innovation. Let’s take a look at how some of these innovation approaches (Task Unification and Attribute Dependency) apply to solar technologies inspired by nature.
There are many ways to reduce your carbon footprint by going green around the house. Solar is just one of them. So what are some simple things that can save you money while saving the environment?
Fossil fuels are a thing of the past. Even utility, coal, natural gas, and oil companies recognize the power of renewable energies, especially solar power. While the International Energy Agency (IEA) and U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Information Administration (EIA) predict a slowing down of solar installation, all signs say that it’s not—especially with fossil fuel companies going green.
Are you looking for more information on solar and if it’ll end up saving you money? There are a lot of companies, non-profits, and search engines that provide tools to determine if solar is right for you. But I, Wanda your Wealth Warrior, am here to defeat some misleading tools.
Solar isn’t anything new. In fact, you’ve been using it in your everyday life, and you probably don’t even think about it. From the vast openness of space to our infrastructure, solar has changed the way we live.
We may not know all the services our government provides for us (The United States Board on Geographic Names – who knew?!), but one thing that you’ll notice with a sharp eye is that a lot of our government buildings are run on solar power. This is especially interesting because government often sets the tone for the future. Our government’s interest in solar energy displays the value of this energy source and saves citizens money.
