Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy is the way of the future…

Renewable Energy is the way of the future… We have enough solar energy hitting the state of Arizona in one year to power our whole country. We have enough wind energy in the state of Wyoming to do the same. 85% of Americans say that if they could build a solar system’s cost into a long-term mortgage, they would. People are getting smarter and technology is becoming more affordable. People are making a difference, one at a time.
