My New Year’s Resolution is to think, live, blog, and dream GREEN.
About 5 years ago I bought an early model Toyota Prius and was immediately hooked on the game of optimizing my mileage. I was always good with recycling, turning off lights, and turning down the heat, but it just didn’t seem like there were significant things I could do that would make much of a difference to the environment or to my pocketbook until that car came along – 45-50 miles per gallon. My eyes and ears perked up. What else is out there?
Over last few years many more products have become available that can make a real difference to lowering energy costs of the average consumer as well as helping our planet. But how do you find out about them? How much of a difference can they really make? Which ones would be useful for YOU?
As of January 1, 2009, my New Year’s resolution (and my new business venture!) is to provide product reviews and information about things that CAN make a difference in our lives. In the middle of 2009 I am planning to open a retail store, the Enfield Energy Emporium, in Enfield, NH. As a member of the ‘USA Solar Store‘ buyers group I will get a chance to work with hundreds of products and provide in-store and online demonstrations, notes, and technical information.
If you have ideas on products or technologies you’d like to know more about, please comment so I can put on the list for a future blog topic.
