What would happen to our world if we ran out of carbon based energy? I am sure you would agree that chaos would erupt. With popular films like "Inconvenient Truth" or the "11th Hour" it is clear that we need to take action. Over the last several decades, we have seen that when our energy supply is disrupted that irrational behavior follows. Just recently, gasoline was $4 a gallon and California had rolling brown and black outs due to the lack of energy. We all know deep down this is a major issue going forward...global warming, lobbying efforts, lack of education on this topic, what are we to do?
We at IER, together with your local power provider have some answers to these questions!
First is Conservation. By upgrading our electrical grid we can reduce consumption by 30%. That is $30 saved for every $100 spent! Most lighting fixtures in America, are 30-40 years old. They are inefficient and waste a huge amount of energy. The second solution is Renewable energy. Lets face it, some day the earth will run dry of its natural carbon base resources. Why not start now to look at renewable sources for our future energy independence.
America has and always will be a country that when it decides to get the job done we do it and we do it right. It is time to roll up our sleeves and get this job done. We all need to take inventory of our businesses and homes to see where we can save money and lower our dependence on carbon based energy. This web site has been created to help you become a part of the solution to this very important mission!
