Solar and Renewables
In case you wonder whether Renewable1 Energy is a passing fancy, consider this headline from the Wall Street Journal on June 24, 2009 “Renewable Energy May Be Stocks’ Next Big Thing”.
Although energy costs are depressed due to the economic crisis, most people believe that through either free-market forces or legislative changes that energy costs will soon recover and surpass their recent highs. In addition, the use of fossil fuels has negative environmental impacts.
Because of these and other political-social reasons, Renewable Energy is poised to be the largest growth market in the United States for the next twenty (20) years.
Unfortunately, the understanding of Renewable Energy by would-be buyers has not kept pace with the market expansion. Therefore, when the sales rep calls with a ‘free’ renewable energy evaluation, the buyer is tempted to say ‘sure thing – can’t beat free’.

Then, with your proper specification, you can request bids on your project knowing the bidders have to comply with YOUR needs.
1 - Renewable Energy can be defined as “Derived from resources that are naturally regenerative or are practically inexhaustible, such as biomass, heat (geothermal, solar, thermal gradient), moving water (hydro, tidal, and wave power), and wind energy. Municipal solid waste may also be considered a source of renewable (thermal) energy.”
