Act Green: Solar energy production doubled in 2008
Posted on: Tuesday, March 17th, 2009 at 9:23 am
A new report from Solarbuzz shows that 2008 was a record setting year for the production of clean, renewable energy production worldwide. Though solar energy production more than doubled, the US came in third in overall solar production.
America should be the world’s leader in renewable energy, but it will take meaningful investments in new technologies. That’s one reason why LCV supports President Obama’s budget, which includes $150 billion in clean energy investments.

Using green building products will not only help in protecting the environment but will also reduce the land field expansion. If you are considering a renovation in your home, then the best thing you need to do is buying green building products most of which are recycled materials.
For this, you have to find out a building contractor who has specialty in using green products only. He will not only be able to use the products more efficiently and usefully, he will also suggest you which products are suitable for your kind of home and which are the latest green building products coming up in the market.
Also make sure that the products that you are purchasing are really green, because there may be product manufacturers that may claim their products to be green but actually, they are not. You can also visit a nearby green products store so that you can choose the products as per your individual choices and requirements.
