  1. With so much heat Sun give us everyday we can use it to generate more cleaner, safer and renewable energy.. though you need to invest a little big but the result is amazing and you can save more in the years to com..

  2. I'd like to see a future where the most common roof covering is solar-paneling.  Granted it likely wouldn't produce enough power on its own to supply demand but if used prolifically it would relieve a tremendous burden.  But the reason this isn't more widely used, or more widely encouraged, is because the less generated power we consume the less money earned by the electrical corporations.  It should be about what we as the people NEED, not profits.
