ENERGY CONSERVATION and ECONOMIC PROGRESS
~~}If every household in California replaced 4 (average 100 watt) incandescent light bulbs with 4 (equivalent 27 watt) compact fluorescent light bulbs, burning on average 5 hours per day, we would save 22 gWh per day - or enough energy saved to shut down 17 power plants. If the State bought these lamps for every household at $2 each, total cost would be $120 million. Could we build the same 17 power plants for $120 million? Not by a long shot!, book: Fuel Savers by Bruce N. Anderson

~~}Solar Indoor Lighting (saves electricity and increases employee work performance):
http://www.solatube.com http://www.kalwall.com http://www.sunpipe.com http://www.sun-dome.com

~~}LED Lighting and LED business signs (extremely energy efficient, very durable and long lasting):
http://www.sloanled.com http://www.isolite.com http://www.trans-lux.com http://www.alpha-led.com http://www.pvled.com http://www.theledlight.com http://www.superbrightleds.com

~~}If every household in California replaced 1 average-flow showerhead with an energy saving showerhead we would save 1.3 kwh per day per household or 19.2 gWh per day - or enough energy saved to shut down another 15 power plants. If the State bought these low flow shower heads for every household at $1 each, total cost would be $15 million. Could we build the same 15 power plants for $1 million each? Hardly!

~~}If every household in California installed a solar hot water heater which saves 5.8 kwh/day, we would cumulatively save 87 gWh/day - or enough energy saved to shut down another 67 power plants.

~~}Other Potential Energy Savings
Lap Top computer versus other computers
LED TV' versus regular TV
Kalwall Windows versus regular Windows- http://www.kalwall.com

Note: if most of the above technologies were used for buildings and homes, energy used in our country would be drastically reduced.
Our country would be able to reduce its energy use to the point that many fossil fuel energy generating plants and nuclear power plants could be closed.

Furthermore, what little energy would be needed, could easily be generated by using Local renewable energy technologies.

Below are listed additional technologies for reducing energy use and for reducing the use of nuclear power, oil, coal and other fossil fuels in our economy.

The various sustainable technologies are improving rapidly and becoming more effective and affordable.

Due the rapid changes and improvements, this resource list does not cover all technologies or the latest improvements in existing sustainable technologies.
The resource list is just a tip of the iceberg in listing the creative innovations going on around the world.

Some the best new technologies are coming from small business, versus coming from large corporations.

If our country has the political will, it can survive the peak oil aftermath.

Additionally, the sooner the various sustainable technologies are incorporated into our economy, the easier the transition will be.

What are we waiting for? Do not allow the fossil corporations and their political cronies to defeat us.

Our grandchildren's future is in our hands. Do not give up.
----------------------

MORE JOBS and ECONOMIC GROWTH
Per the Wisconsin Energy Bureau, locally generated renewable energy (solar water heating, solar pool heating, solar building heating, solar daylighting, solar electric, wind, micro-hydro, organic vegetable diesel fuel, solar-hydrogen fuel cells, wind-hydrogen fuel cells, wave-hydrogen fuel cells, tidal power, Geothermal Hydronic heating and cooling, organic farming and gardening) creates THREE TIMES more jobs and economic growth in local economies than using imported fossil fuel or energy from other regions.

Keep our country strong like a rock!

Please support LOCALLY generated and LOCALLY owned renewable energy systems

For more information, please contact local gardeners and farmers who specialize in Organic gardening, Permaculture gardening, Biodynamic gardening, Japanese Kyusei Nature gardening, Biointensive gardening, Heirloom gardening, Agroforestry gardening, Organic Hydroponics gardening and Gardening Therapy. Gardening is micro-climate specific. These means that local gardeners might know of gardening techniques and resources which are helpful for the location you live in. Keep researching, reading, refining your gardening methods and experimenting with different growing techniques. Eco Gardening technology is changing and improving all the time. Also, as the climate changes, you may need to learn other gardening techniques for various climates.
