On today’s Sustainable Living program we spent the hour talking about home solar electric systems. Our first guest, Paul Spencer, is the founder of The Clean Energy Collective located in Colorado. Paul’s business is setting up community solar power and other forms of renewable energy systems (wind, hydro, etc) that you can buy into for the long term, off-setting part or all of your power consumption to renewable. You can visit his website to find out more or read an article written about Community Solar in the current issue of Home Power magazine.

Next up, we were joined by a friend of the SL program, a partner in Hotwire Enterprises, located in Tarpon Springs and a great source of solar information, John Gambil. I think John touched on all of the issues of solar electric systems in our area, even solar on a rainy day! The bottom line, now is the time to install a solar electric system; solar will never be cheaper, the systems work with hardly any maintenance, they’re the best investment you can make for yourself, family, community and our beautiful world, and can last for a very, very long time. Of course the first steps are mainly conservation and a solar hot water system, and we’ll be talking about these issues on future shows. Check out this site to find out what’s possible for solar power in our area. John and Libbie’s business website and phone: 727-943-0424.
