As your buyers know, the price of oil is going up again, now at $86 a barrel, which means we'll all be paying more to drive our cars and our fossil-fuel energy costs will rise —again. So SolarDay 2010
, an international day of recognition for solar energy, sustainability, and energy independence, comes at an good time. Held on June 19, this celebration offers a golden opportunity to showcase your company and models.
With high (and going higher energy costs) SolarDay 2010 includes useful information for consumers to go on an "energy diet", including an energy audit they can easily do for their home or business, information about solar rebates (and how they vary by location and state), informtion about the PACE program (now in 16 states to pay for solar), suggested SolarDay community events for U.S. cities and organizations, contacts for website visitors to U.S. government and state government websites related to energy conservation.
John Reed, San Francisco-based Director of SolarDay 2010 says: "More and more people are adopting greener lifestyles. Solar is a major component to green lifestyles. You see green in the cars we drive, the consumer products we buy, the everyday things we do - from recycling to building greener homes and commercial buildings - and the intensive interest in lowering our energy costs and energy conservation. And, let's not forget that 50% of the electric energy produced in the U.S. is from burning coal. In China, 83% of the electricity is generated by burning coal."
