The world energy needs grow as technology matures. Though recent technology has appreciated the benefits of using minimal power requirements, still the growing number of people using several modern devices simply adds to the increasing need. In order to cope with this, energy companies have been very keen in making efforts to make energy available anytime.

Sounds familiar. The gold this time around is the free energy around us on a daily basis. There’s enough gold in them thar hills, I mean solar energy emanating from the center of our system to provide more than enough energy the world could consume. We just have to find the means to harvest that energy without breaking the bank and do it cheaper than we can by either digging coal out of the ground or sucking and processing crude oil.

The largest hydropower plant in the world is located in Washington along the Grand Coulee Dam. It took 11 years to build it from 1933 to 1942. Since that time it has undergone numerous facelifts and changes. It is amazing at a size of over 5,000 feet long and 550 feet high.

Get started by getting the best solar guidance materials available. You need a quality manual with detailed, easy-to-understand, step-by-step instructions on exactly how to make your solar panels.

It is often presumed that self-sufficiency in sustainable energy is only for nerds, but this is not true, it is now within the reach of every family or household. If you have lots of money, a solar or wind powered system will cost you about $45,000 and it will take about ten years to recover your investment by getting off the grid. However, you can have the same apparatus for much less than half that amount.

For my current job, I typically travel a few times a year to the US, and I find it really surprisingly that most cafeterias don’t have recycling bins or curbside recycling is almost non-existent south of the border. Most of my customers I speak with are embarrassed by this lack of initiative by their governments and it was then that I realized that without some form of legislation, it would be very difficult for any country to adopt a more environmentally conscious mindset. For example, you would think Germany would not be a very good country for solar energy generation. However, if you ever fly over some cities in Germany, you would see rooftops upon rooftops of solar panels. It’s because the German government has provided subsidies for solar panel installations.

Anger is also a driving force to change things. If we can use the energy of anger to inspire us to work for a cause which changes some of the bad habits that society has got into we are turning a potentially negative emotion into something good for us and society.
