I have long been one who my friends thought of as a “tree hugger.” As long as twenty years ago I started looking into solar power and renewable energy. I never really thought it was a cost effective thing for me to do, though, as I am a grade school teacher on a limited budget.
Recently, I once again looked into green technologies to see how they had advanced in the last twenty years. It turns out they are much more efficient and cost effective. Plus, the federal government is offering great tax incentives for those who install these things.
I decided that before I went to solar and renewable, my house should be more efficient. So I had new, green, double-paned windows installed in my house. I now expect to see up to 20% home energy savings through green technology, just from installing new windows, and I get a huge tax break!
If you are scared to look into green technologies because of price, the time could not be better to check these solutions out. You can save on http://www.newyorkenergyrates.com/ and feel good about saving the environment at the same time.
