DO IT YOURSELF ENERGY
We all need to do our part in saving our planet and the environment.
The best way to do this is to find responsible, reliable and renewable alternatives to using fossil fuels.
Because of the advances in science and technology a lot of renewable sources of energy has come up.
One of the most promising sources is solar energy. This is specially true because it is getting easier to build your own solar panel.
You will be able to help the environment as well as help yourself by reducing your electricity consumption and lower your electricity costs for your whole family.
There are sites on the Internet that are dedicated to teaching you the simple steps in making your own solar panels.
It might cost a little bit high at the onset but the long term benefits will definitely outweigh the short term expenses. Go green and help save the environment.
OH SAY CAN YOU SEE THE SOLAR FLAG POLE LIGHTS?
The United States Flag Code says among several other rules and guidelines that generally the flag is displayed between sunrise and sunset; nighttime display is permitted to achieve patriotic effect AND if the flag is illuminated. This is not always easy to achieve at home, of course, and so solutions were required.
My personal solution for this is an outdoor all-weather flag, hung properly from a staff projecting from the corner of the rooftop of our home, and illuminated with solar flag pole lights. This way, they come on at dusk and it simply is not necessary to hoist the flag up and down or turn the lights on by hand. Besides, I like to think of solar lighting as representative of the independent pioneer spirit.
IVE STARTED A TREND WITH A SOLAR LAMP POST LIGHT
I like my landlord / builder (we own the house; he owns the land) just fine, but the man is a Luddite by 21st century standards. We have cable because he wont allow newfangled fiber on his property. The whole neighborhood is his private property so the roads are maintained by him, and the same goes for things like streetlights.
So we asked if we could install a solar lamp post light in front of our house, and after much dithering he said we could do it if we installed it ourselves. Three weeks after we did so I was stopped on the street by a neighbor asking for information, and a couple weeks after that they had sprung up all over the neighborhood.
