It's beginning to get chilly in Saratoga Springs, and while the coming winter will no doubt have many upstate New Yorkers dreaming in just a few months of heading South, eco-concious individuals can imagine a different kind of Island getaway, to an island that makes renewable energy viable one a grand scale.
Previously on the Green Blog, we examined several natural Islands that have managed to generate the majority, if not the totality, of their energy from renewable sources. These communities exist as a microcosm of the larger world, pioneering the application of alternative power sources on a utility-level scale. Green power Islands, however, represent a concept that would allow renewable energy to be applied to already thriving metropolises the world over.
Hi! I'm Karen Totino, owner of Green Conscience Home. I'd love to hear your thoughts on any of our posts, so comment away! One of my goals is to get the community discussing some of these eco topics, and hopefully help each other out!
