This website aims to be an ever-growing source of practical information to help people and businesses...
There are both economic and environmental reasons to shift from fossil fuels to a clean energy economy.
This non-commercial website is the personal project of Larry Miloshevich. I'm a regular guy who has made some progress on the clean energy transition in my own life and in my community of Lafayette, Colorado.
I believe there are many others out there who want to embrace clean energy but may not really know where to begin.
Purpose #1. I did a lot of research and experimentation to answer questions like these: Does it make sense to replace a still-working older refrigerator? Or to add more attic insulation? What type of lightbulbs should I use? What are the advantages and disadvantages of solar panels? Should I replace energy-hog appliances and lighting before installing solar panels? The idea behind this website is to make good use of that hard-won knowledge by passing it on to others. A few such pages are: "The Refrigerator Story", "My Solar PV System", "Lighting Choices", "Lessons from an Energy Meter", and "Opt Out" (of unwanted mail, etc).
Other topics coming soon: Where and How to Start?; Home Weatherization; Energy Efficiency vs Conservation.
Purpose #2 is to address such questions as "Why bother?" and "What exactly are Watts and kilowatt-hours (kWh)?". I've also written a background essay called "Global Warming in a Nutshell", and accumulated some Energy-Related Articles that are a good starting point for exploring energy-related topics.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
