                               THE STORY:  "BOTTLED LIFE":

To be able to sell and make money from water, you first have to own it. While the world's population continues to grow at an alarming rate, water is becoming an increasingly scarce commodity. The Swiss film "Bottled Life" documents the booming business with bottled water, by focusing on the global leader in this lucrative multi-billion dollar market – namely, the Nestlé corporation in Switzerland. Nestlé currently controls more than 70% of the world's bottled water brands, a company intent on amassing resource rights worldwide, with the aim of dominating the global water market of the future.... http://www.bottledlifefilm.com/index.php/the-story.html

Price Of Solar Much Lower Than Solar Savings

Price Of Solar Much Lower Than Solar Savings | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

Originally published on Cost Of Solar.
As I noted on Monday, the cost of solar power is insanely lower than you probably think. But, in that post, I focused on the average cost of solar panels, not specific all-in costs of going solar in your specific location. So, you might be wondering, how much does solar power cost 

in total?

 

Naturally, the huge fall in the cost of solar panels has resulted in much lower all-in costs, but those costs vary tremendously across the US due to differences in solar power incentives, solar permitting requirements, other solar power regulations, and the maturity of the solar market in different places.
