Beat the heat: EPA's infographic is a good place to start

Beat the heat: EPA's infographic is a good place to start | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

There are a few things to like about this infographic put out by the EPA's Energy Star program.

For one thing, it has a whole section on climate change instead of the usual single-minded fixation on saving energy. While their five energy-saving tips are pretty basic, they are not trivial. Recommendation 3, "seal your heating and cooling ducts", is surprisingly important, given that many people have their air conditioning ducts running through their very hot attics and are wasting serious money by cooling it instead of the space below.

Ivanpah: the World’s Largest Solar Thermal Project

Ivanpah: the World’s Largest Solar Thermal Project | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

For the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the numbers don’t lie – and they don’t fail to impress, either. In one of the U.S.’s sunniest regions, the sky is the limit for this solar power project.


The Ivanpah project, comprised of three separate plants to be built in phases, has begun construction on federal land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The project received a $1.6 billion loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Electricity from Ivanpah will be sold under multiple power-purchase agreements, each of 25-30 years duration with Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas and Electric Company. The electricity generated by all three plants is enough to support a yearly average of 140,000 homes, and more than twice that number when operating at maximum capacity during the peak hours of the day.

Ivanpah is the first large-scale solar thermal plant to be built in California in 20 years, supporting California’s goal of 33 percent renewable power generation by 2020.

Would it not be nice if we all got onboard on the GREEN movement?  I live in Southwest Florida where solar and wind could be so much more utilized.  Let me know what you think. Would you like more solar or wind power?

I'm hoping we'll see seasonal changes too! Great potential for looking at conservation issues, biodiversity, urban encroachment etc

Steve Mattison's curator insight, July 19, 2013 9:36 AM

It is a lot greener than you would think considering all the slash and burn hype the media puts out.
