Lifeport by Envision Solar of San Diego is another option if you have the space.

With a $15,000 price point, installed in a weekend (not including foundation or stucco), it sounds like a winner.

Global Energy Network Institute

GENI (Global Energy Network Institute) is a 501(c)3 founded in 1986 by Peter Meisen to investigate the idea of Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller, proposing a global electric energy grid as the number one priority to solve many of the world's most pressing problems.

Folklore tells the story of lemmings committing mass suicide by jumping off a Norwegian cliff – a metaphor for people who unquestioningly follow the leader to dangerous or fatal consequence. Could the enclosed headline scream any louder?: “Climate Change Speeds Up since 1997 Kyoto Accord.” All indicators have worsened and accelerated beyond some of the grimmest warnings of 12 years ago.

Are we just smarter lemmings headed for the cliff? Or can humanity actually change course before we reach the edge? No one really wants the planetary systems to overshoot thresholds of sustainability and then collapse. The greatest opportunity for global action is the Copenhagen Summit on Climate Change this month. All world leaders are meeting to set carbon reduction targets and energy policies that will affect every person on our planet.

Last month, GENI sent our recommendations to the leadership of every nation. Entitled “Clean Electricity is Essential for Sustainable Development,” we urge all leaders to stop building new fossil fuel plants and instead develop large renewable energy resources and link transmission grids to deliver that clean energy to our cities and industry. This is still the highest priority objective of the World GameTM simulation, and we have squandered any luxury of time to spare.

Please contact your President or Prime Minister and ask them to be bold in their Copenhagen commitment. Now is not the time for timid solutions. Ask your media to reprint the enclosed letter to President Obama, which we sent around the world. Now is the time. The cliff is just ahead, and we know what to do. Future generations are counting on us.

In partnership for the planet,

Peter Meisen
President of GENI

Solar Tower produces constant 30 KW/hr for $1-million

Night-time condensation can feed plants under the canopy, and capture carbon for fuel too. Sucking the air through buildings can provide air conditioning too.

John Stewart takes on Climate Change

Climate-Change deniers are willfully missing the point: Extreme weather is climate change! Not only does "Snowpocalypse" not disprove global warming, it actually matches scientific predictions that climate change will increase extreme weather events of many kinds, including heavy snowfalls in regions like the Northeast.
