Unless you’re a fan of being kept in the dark, you need to understand how to use lighting for your daily activities. This can come through either natural or technological means. But for ecologically friendly people, nature-based and efficient methods are going to be the best. In those two circumstances converge on many different lighting […]
What factors have contributed to the explosion of interest in solar power in Canada over the past few years? Dive into the research to see what’s hot (and cold!) about solar power in Canada.
Solar power is growing in popularity but the upfront cost might seem daunting for many homeowners, but there many other ways to finance their solar project.
Solar power has surged around the world in the past decade as the cost of solar cells and solar panels has fallen. The US Department of Energy SunShot Initiative aims to see the cost of installed solar drop to $1.00 per kWh by 2020. That’s a 75% reduction from prices in 2010. Climate scientists warn […]

Renewable energy is on the brink of becoming the most sought after power source in history. And why not? Sunshine and wind are free. Once the systems are in place to capture their energy and convert it into electricity, there are no “fuel costs” needed to make more electricity in the future. Add in the […]
Is the UK solar industry dying due to the ramping up of nuclear subsidies in the country? Finally giving the green light to the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station, the UK Government has ended months of uncertainty surrounding this controversial new project.
A society-wide transition to clean energy requires action on many levels. Private consumers, commercial-level consumers, institutions, and government need to aid the transition.
