Solar Savings

Welcome to the home of Your Solar Savings Project. Get ready to see what it takes to reduce costs on your project.

So what is this web site about anyway? It is the steps of a project taken resulting in "HUGE" reductions in your energy costs!

Making it simple for you is useful, but more importantly, doing it in such a way that you can start right now doing things that will add up to "HUGE REDUCTIONS" in the end.

I will be breaking this down into the following sections:

1. Preparing for solar heating and air conditioning - heating and cooling with solar energy.

Heating Preparations

2. Preparing for solar water heating - saving with solar water heating.

Water Heating Preparations

3. Identifying appliance efficiency - solar energy for your appliances.

Identifying Appliance Efficiency

4. Lighting in and out - solar energy for your lighting needs.

Lighting Efficiently Preparations and Design

The above 4 steps are in the sequence of the what uses the most energy first and the next most energy and so forth. Please follow these steps for your solar savings. I have taken this into consideration in an effort to help you save the most amount of energy/money first with the least expense. In this way your ROI is bigger and faster and you can move onto the next step sooner.

Did you know that many Americans could afford to replace thier dependancy on electricity from the electric companies IF "they reduced the large percentage of energy they "WASTE". Too many cannot afford the increasing costs of electricty. Following the steps above will prepare you by reducing your electric bill, leading up to the point of affordability for solar.

I am going to show you how to become energy "Savy" and provide you with the links directly to products that will save you both energy and money. These will be conveniently located on each page throughout this web site. So once you are ready to purchase your solar products they will be available in both banners and text links. Find out what your solar savings will be!

For more selfish reasons I want you to help me make our planet healthy and beautiful again, by becoming energy efficient and using solar energy. I have seen our rivers and streams change to unhealthy colors, our oceans with known death zones and our skies thick with toxic spew. Solar savings has many other benefits not readily seen and are indirectly responsible for benefits associated with their use.

What one individual does really matters. That one individual can grow to 2 and as this progression takes place things do get better. It will take awhile and if only by our persistence we will see "Mother Nature" in her youthful beauty, once again.


Another way we can restore our environment to a healthy one is through the practice of Permaculture. "Permaculture is not the movement of sustainability and it is not the philosophy behind it; it is the problem-solving approach the movement and the philosophy can use to meet their goals and design a world in which human needs are met while enhancing the health of this miraculous planet that supports us.”

Most of my time these days are spent on activities related to Permaculture Design. I am now a certified Permaculture Designer internationally recognized and applying my skills in the "Heartland" of America. Restoration Agriculture is now my specialty with the use of solar in each of my designs.
