Alternative Green Energy

Alternative green energy is more than a cliche these days.  Adoption of renewable energy sources such as solar energy, wind power, hydrogen fuel cells, hydro power and bio-fuels could well be what saves this magnificent planet for future generations, allowing them the opportunity to enjoy the mysteries and wonders of this unique planet.

Can we afford to take the chance that global warming is nothing more than a boogey man created by the doomsayers that have always been among us?  If we decide to take action now and support the many alternative green energy sources being developed and brought to market, we will all gain by having cleaner air, cleaner water and the promise of a bright future for following generations.

Now is the time to educate yourself and take the steps to turn away from fossil fuels to the promise of a cleaner, sustainable tomorrow.  As early adopters of solar energy, we have been briefly side tracked in the use of solar panels but are working our way back to implementing these systems into our home.  We have passive solar heat coming in through our south oriented windows.  We used to pump our water, run some lights, even a refrigerator from our photovoltaic panels and now we want to heat the water running underneath our floors with solar hot water.  That is the ultimate in heating – solar energy through the windows and heating the water to heat the floor!

If you’re interested in the myriad opportunities to make the switch away from fossil fuels, please visit our website to learn more.  It’s our project we’ve undertaken to learn more about the current state of alternative green energy so we can make  more informed choices for our own home tucked away in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico.
