    Have purchased a couple of products from these guys. Nice to see them getting some press. Really nice people!

    This is great. More data is always good. It’s more likely to pay off with useful information than using a bike to run a blender.

    Word, Ernunnos.

    Maybe it’s just being married to an energy analyst, but I’ve kind of come to <3 monitoring and modeling of energy use.

    If consumers are given an easy, afforable and mainstream option to generate their own power – be it solar, wind or whatever other technology gets to the market first, then this sorta thing will be common place.

    You’ll want to know your production, cause there is profit in selling back to the grid and not having to use any “paid for” energy.

    I want my solar panels, now!

    I just found some more great tips from Josh Dorfman’s book “The Lazy Environmentalist on a Budget,” ……instead of spending thousands of dollars on solar panels for your home, the book highlights services from businesses like SolarCity, a company that leases home solar planes for Zero-Money down and a low monthly cost that typically helps homeowners save money immediately on home energy bills.

    I’m not at the point yet where I can change to solar panels in my home, but I thought you might like that idea. Personally, for Earth Day, I just try to do what I can for the moment and get out to enjoy the day.
