Solar Net Metering Equals Net Benefits In California And Vermont

Solar Net Metering Equals Net Benefits In California And Vermont | iMobileHomes - Interior Gardens for Air Quality | Scoop.it
Two new reports from California and Vermont show that net metering creates significant net benefits for consumers while strengthening one of the US solar market’s strongest drivers of new installations.  [caption id=...
MobileHomeContractors's insight:

This is a huge issue in both states.  The idea of providing a credit instead of cash to home owners that are taking the initiative to lower their energy footprint does not make as much sense as actually paying them cash for the power that their solar instalations create.  Because of this, some savvy businesses and homeowners are approaching their neighbors with a proposal to sell them the power at a cost which is lower than that which they pay to the power company.  Stay tuned as iMobileHomes follows this story with updates.

GUEST POST: Sprouting For Healthy Eating

GUEST POST: Sprouting For Healthy Eating | iMobileHomes - Interior Gardens for Air Quality | Scoop.it
I am so excited to share this guest post about sprouting (which is a container garden of sorts...) by Phil Nauta. He is a SOUL Certified Organic Land Care Professional and author of the book Building Soils Naturally, coming out in Spring 2012.
MobileHomeContractors's insight:

This Life on a Balcony article is awesome.  It clearly describes how living in smal spaces need not be a restrction on living well.  Having sprouted from many years, we can personally attest to how easy and inexpensive using this small space technique of growing mocro-greens in a jar is in a mobile home. 

iMobileHomes™ totally recommends sprouting of seeds in a jar for mobile home owners for living well in smaller spaces.  Watch many other interesting videos on gardening inside and around your mobile home here.  http://imobilehomes.blogspot.com/p/growing-food-in-imobiehomes.html

This is a great concept for mobile home living.  Convert your mobile home to an eco home one window at a time and feed your family year long.  Find a southern exposure wall for winter growing.  Recycling and converting wine bottles to planters instead of sending them to the landfill or recycler just makes great sense.  Let iMobileHomes know your thoughts.  Give us your comments here.  http://imobilehomes.blogspot.com/p/growing-food-in-imobiehomes.html
