The San Diego Alternative Energy Meetup Group Pages

What an opportunity for all. Whether you are a homeowner, renter, student, business, employee or just free spirit there is a place for you in making the earth a better place for all. Everybody wants to know more about sustainability but if you really want to learn, get involved.

Homeowners: If your electric bill is $100 or more with careful consideration of a good solar contractor you can get an outstanding return on your investment. Imagine parity on your bill for ten years and after that practically no bill. If you are a big user of electricity you are rewarded even more so. Call your utilities and find out what's free for conserving energy and water in you home

Renters: If you rent a house read the above. If you rent in a complex suggest to the owners going "green" with pools and outdoor lighting. It is good for the earth and their pocket books.

Students: Volunteer and learn at the same time. The CCSE is always looking for volunteers. A local organization puts solar power on low income homes. I'll post that name soon.

Businesses: You get the biggest break of all. Not only do you get incentives that homeowners get but you get huge depreciation benefits. Imagine a solar investment with parity to your bill for five years and after that little or no electric bill for twenty, thirty years or more. What are you paying in electric utilities now? Take that number an add to your profit. Does that make sense to your bottom line? Business owner don't forget the incentives for other improvements including HVAC, insulation, solar thermal and clever new technologies combining all. Have a competent assessment of your building by a professional to illuminate it's full potential for sustainability.

Employee: Where is your salary raise? It went to the utility and oil companies. Utilities have climbed at over 6.7% for the last 25 years. That means they have doubled every 10 years. During these hard times getting your employer on board the "green" movement may keep him in business and you in a job!

I'm sure there are hundreds if not thousands of ways to go "green" so let us know what they are.

I plan on having MEETUP's that help you cross the gate and take action. It is not enough to talk the theory, go to energy fairs, we must act now to save our planet. If you have ideas how you can help achieve these ends or how I might be able to help you then e-mail me.

If you are presently in the solar field or your business can offer something to our members then I want to hear from you. The value you offer must be real, have integrity and open to scrutiny. In other words you must be a noble crusader for solar, alternative energy and sustainable energy.
