The Benefits of Solar Power — Ted Rollins

The Benefits of Solar Power — Ted Rollins | Ted Rollins | Scoop.it

Radiant solar power and heat from the sun has been harnessed by humans since ancient times utilizing an ever evolving array of technologies. In 2011, the International Energy Agency said that “the development of affordable, inexhaustible and clean solar energy technologies will have huge longer-term benefits. It will increase countries’ energy security through reliance on an indigenous, inexhaustible and mostly import-independent resources, enhance sustainability, reduce pollution, lower the costs of mitigating climate change, and keep fossil fuel prices lower than otherwise. These advantages are global. Hence the additional costs of the incentives for early deployment should be considered learning investments; they must be wisely spent and need to be widely shared”.

Harnessing solar power has incredible advantages and is highly beneficial to all. Some of the benefits may seem obvious, some may be debatable and some may be surprising to some, but make no mistake, regardless of the detractors it is important that we continue to support the development of solar technologies.

Sustainability: Solar energy is not only sustainable, it is renewable and this means that we will never run out of it. It is about as natural a source of power as it is possible to generate. Not only are we able to refuel our vehicles with it we can heat our water and light our homes.

Self Sufficiency: We can generate our own source of electricity via solar panels potentially enabling us to live off grid. In other words we need not be dependent on the public utility companies to supply our power and we also won’t be required to pay for out power.

Campus Crest Communities Embraces Solar Energy — Ted Rollins

Campus Crest Communities Embraces Solar Energy — Ted Rollins | Ted Rollins | Scoop.it

Campus Crest Communities Inc. is proud to unveil a plan to install more than 9,000 solar panels on its student-housing communities in Greeley, Co.; Flagstaff, Az.; and Las Cruces, N.M.

The project will provide 2.3 million kilowatt-hours of renewable power per year, offsetting electricity consumption at the communities by about 50 percent and eliminate an astounding 80 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

“Sustainable living is central to our company philosophy and business practices, and we are pleased to find that our residents are equally as passionate about the concept,” says CEO of Campus Crest Communities Ted Rollins.

Campus Crest is working with The Institute for the Built Environment at Colorado State University and the Center for Living Environments and Regeneration on its sustainability initiatives.

Preserving our natural resources in the 21st Century is a necessity that all of us can agree upon. No matter what new highs or lows the cost of gasoline or home heating oil may reach, it is highly probable that our world has a finite reserve of fossil fuels. Here are a few of the most common forms of renewable energy:

Wind Power
Airflows can be used to run wind turbines. Modern wind turbines range from around 600 kW to 5 MW of rated power, although turbines with rated output of 1.5–3 MW have become the most common for commercial use; the power output of a turbine is a function of the cube of the wind speed, so as wind speed increases, power output increases dramatically. Areas where winds are stronger and more constant, such as offshore and high altitude sites are preferred locations for wind farms. Typical capacity factors are 20-40%, with values at the upper end of the range in particularly favorable sites.

Globally, the long-term technical potential of wind energy is believed to be five times total current global energy production, or 40 times current electricity demand. This could require wind turbines to be installed over large areas, particularly in areas of higher wind resources. Offshore resources experience average wind speeds of ~90% greater than that of land, so offshore resources could contribute substantially more energy.

We Need More Trees! — Ted Rollins

We Need More Trees! — Ted Rollins | Ted Rollins | Scoop.it

http://tedrollins.org/ted-rollins/we-need-more-trees/

 

Each spring on Arbor Day, the nation takes a moment to honor the trees of our Green Mother Earth. We give back to the environment that tirelessly supports and sustains us season after season. Here at the Grove, we thought it’d be a great day to kick off our Urban Reforestation Program. This year, April 27th, in honor of the service trees do us all over the world, we start the transformation, turning the Grove Nation in to an actual Urban Forest where people and trees can live and groove together in harmony. It’s a Green Revolution!

Top 10 Reasons We Need Trees:

Trees help purify the air we breathe by absorbing pollutants.
Trees increase property values and improve the tax base in communities.
Trees improve neighborhood appeal, attracting business, shoppers, and homeowners.
Trees cool our cities and towns by reducing heat generated by buildings and paved surfaces.
Tree shade, properly placed, can save an average household up to $250 annually in energy costs. 6. Trees reduce the amount of pollutants in sewer systems, saving communities millions of dollars in water treatment costs.
Trees soften harsh building lines and large expanses of pavement, making urban environments much more pleasant.
Trees provide habitat for birds and other wildlife, maintaining a balance with nature even in urban areas.
Trees reduce the amount of water-borne pollutants that reach streams and rivers.
Trees reduce levels of domestic violence and foster safer, more sociable neighborhood environments.
“They are beautiful in their peace; they are wise in their silence. They will stand after we are dust. They teach us, and we tend them.” -Galeain ip Altiem MacDunelmor

As a result, Campus Crest’s donation can potentially help save up to 1,722 lives through the use of red cells, platelets and plasma the donated blood provides.

Ted Rollins, co-founder and chief executive officer, and Mike Hartnett, co-founder and chief investment officer of Campus Crest commented: “This initiative is a way for our organization and our student residents to join forces and contribute to an important social cause that saves lives. We are proud to partner with these dedicated suppliers and we thank everyone who donated blood in support of their service to our nation’s health care system.”

“We are so grateful for the wonderful partnership with Campus Crest Communities and the staff, students, and supporters who have given the most important gift of all…the gift of life-saving blood,” said Bonnie McElveen-Hunter, chairman of the American Red Cross. “The Red Cross relies on dedicated community sponsors like Campus Crest to fulfill its lifesaving mission. On behalf of the entire Red Cross and all of the people who are alive today because of the selfless donors who took part in this campaign, I want to say a heartfelt thank you.”

The blood drive is part of Campus Crest’s Grove Outreach Team (“GO Team”) service program that supports various charitable initiatives the company implements at its corporate office and in the communities in which it owns and operates student housing properties. The GO Team program provides student tenants and Campus Crest employees with an opportunity to contribute to social and community causes.

Setting the Record Straight

Setting the Record Straight | Ted Rollins | Scoop.it
Here are a few facts that Roger Schuler, AKA the Legal schnauzer “forgets” to mention

 

Fact 1: I was divorced and followed all state laws and regulations when getting my divorce.

 

Fact 2: The case although originally started in Greenville, SC was moved to Alabama after the Judge in Greenville spoke with the Judge in Alabama and agreed that Alabama should have venue because that is where the children and ex wife lived. The judge issued an order to that effect which is part of the record, but which Mr. Schuler for some reason cant find

 

Fact 3: There were years of discovery culminating in

a multiple day trial in which my ex- wife was represented by two attorneys

 

Fact 4: I have complied with this order since its Outset

 

Fact 5: My ex wife filed a motion to reconsider this order which was denied, She then filed an appeal which upheld the lower courts ruling and then finally filed an application for the case to be heard at the state supreme court which was denied

 

All of this is a matter of public record, however, Mr. Schuler only cites exerts from pleadings that are part of the initial filings and that we not found to be accurate in a court of law.

 

I am not sure of what the relationship is between my ex wife and Mr. Schuler, but it is somewhat suspect in that he cites a variety of things that he cannot support and seems to have a personal issue here.
