Utilities are among the single biggest beneficiaries,
. . . of the federal government’s energy assistance program families,
. . . Frankly, energy assistance, is yet another fossil fuel subsidy.

The Rural Renewable Energy Alliance,
. . . a 15-year-old organization that’s made increasing access to solar power its mission,
. . . is taking that goal one step further.
The group is creating a system in which these families,
. . . can get their power free from a community solar garden,
. . . instead of from fossil fuels,

When Energy prices spike,
. . . it is the poor of this world who carry the vast majority of this burden.

What does it mean for the economic burden of those in poverty to increase further?  


It means the conflicting needs of:
. . . . . . Food,
. . . . . . Medical Care,
. . . . . . Housing, and
. . . . . . Warmth, are in even tighter competition.
It means a greater gap between,
. . . . . . Suitable living conditions, and
. . . . . . Actual living conditions.
It means a greater gap between,
. . . . . . the haves, and
. . . . . . the have-nots.
It means a greater taxpayer burden,
. . . to attempt to remediate some of these effects.
In short, it means increasing deterioration of,
. . . the human condition,
. . . for an ever-increasing portion of the human population.

In areas with long, cold winters,
. . . more than 1/2 of energy consumption in residences,
. . . is utilized for space heating, and
. . . it also figures heavily, in the annual pollution emissions,
. . . resulting from a given household.

Energy is a crippling financial burden for the poor, and
. . . this burden is increasing every year.

Solar air heat,
. . . is often the most efficient, and
. . . cost competitive solar technology available in colder climates,
. . . saving clients many thousands of dollars, and
. . . eliminating toxic emissions!

Energy independence helps people,
. . . by reducing the amount of money they must spend every year on energy.
When supplies are uncertain and energy prices spike,
. . . it is the poor of this world,
. . . who carry the vast majority of this burden.

The greatest economic return on investment,
. . . is weatherization, to reduce the amount of energy required,
. . . followed by stored Renewable Energy, to provide heat and light.
The money saved, can be spent on:
. . . . . . other basic needs,
. . . . . . improve their quality of life,
. . . . . . improve local economy,
. . . . . . reduce debt,
. . . . . . reduce stress, tension and conflict.

Weatherization + Renewable Energy = Renewable Economy.

A solar light cost as little as $10,
. . . pays for itself after 12 weeks, and
. . . lasts for 5 years.
Having free, clean light, and
. . . not wasting money on kerosene,
. . . transforms peoples’ chances in life.
