But, experts agree that there is a way to address this health issue—use renewable energy, like wind and solar, to power our lives and our planet.
There have been many advances in green building science and technology over the last decade. Advanced modeling, coupled with smart materials, intelligent system design, and energy-efficient appliances, some buildings can actually supply all their own energy. As one would expect many of these hyper-efficient buildings are public buildings—schools, offices, municipal buildings. But others are single-family homes.
With severe weather becoming more common, in part due to the impacts of climate change, many are asking how can communities take action quickly—before and after a weather event. Critical resources like electrical power are often hit first and the hardest in such situations.
Fortunately, clean energy solutions like solar and wind can help bring a community’s power back online relatively quickly and where it’s needed most.
When you’re out and about and using a mobile device, wouldn’t it be great to not have to worry about where the closest electrical outlet is? Well, you don’t have to.
