Hawaii Goes Green – Alternative Energies

Eons ago, wise elders have said that when we use the heat beneath our feet plus the heat from the Sun, and the power of the wind, we will be okay.  To me that translates into geothermal, solar and wind power. The time has come for the world to wake up to using renewable alternative energies for their electrical costs plus their heating and cooling costs. 

For those who follow my blog regularly, you know that both my hubby and I took the training a year ago to be geothermal installers.  We took the beginners course and have a long way to go before we feel we confidently know what we are doing.  I was totally thrilled with what I learned about this amazing alternative energy just due to it’s high efficiency rating compared to other alternative energies.  The initial outlay is costly, but if one looks to the 5 to 10 year turn around, that upfront cost is paid back many times over with the reduction in ongoing costs of heating or air conditioning.  That’s why many governments are now insisting that most new government buildings include geothermal.  This is being done in both Canada and the UK.  I was totally thrilled to find out that Kona island in Hawaii is using geothermal to provide 25% of its electricity needs.  Neither Tom nor I understood how this was possible until we saw these websites of geothermal that is happening just a few miles from here.

I was delighted to find that the entire state of Hawaii has a mandate to have electricity totally generated by alternative energy by 2020.  Currently they import 7 billion dollars worth per year of imported oil just to produce electricity alone.  This year they open a massive solar cell farm and a wind generating farm.

Germany had the foresight to do this close to 2 decades ago and they are almost there.  Too bad our federal and provincial governments didn’t have as much political will.  See the comparison between what Germany and what Canada is doing here.  http://windpathfilms.com/blog/2008/11/alternative-energy-canada-needs-to.html I was saddened to learn that a Canadian could not make a living in Canada with solar energy.  He moved his business to Germany and is now thriving.

 

 

Please educate your politicians whom you voted into office.  The time is now to take action.  If we had done this 20 years ago all of our countries would be in the enviable position that Germany is in regarding heating and cooling.  It takes the will of the people plus the political will.  Then just make it happen a little bit each year.  Hawaii is doing it.  China is beginning to do it.  Is your country doing it?

 

 

In my greatest dreams someone will come up with a way that a KISS small earth-solar system will be installed at every person’s home around the globe.  Imagine the dream … free heat, cooling and electricity from the sun, earth and wind!

 

 

Please collectively put this on your Full Moon Vision Boards.

We the people can make this happen! Yes we can!

Dance in the Full Cancer Moonlight!
