From Coal to Solar – A Clean Break

From Coal to Solar – A Clean Break

It’s hard to take the mile-high view on climate change when you’re toiling away underground to put food on the table and a roof over your family’s head. That’s certainly the case for coal miners, whose concerns about meeting the needs of their kids here and now trump whatever concerns exist about the world those kids will inherit 30 years later. When you spend your days 600 feet below the surface, where temperatures range between 55 and 60 degrees year round, you might not notice that the biosphere above you is slowly roasting. As the...

Solar now at The Pointe at Ballwin Commons

Solar now at The Pointe at Ballwin Commons

In symmetrical rows, more than 200 solar panels, tilted and oriented to the south, now cover a large portion of the gymnasium roof of The Pointe at Ballwin Commons. And while the solar panels won’t meet all The Pointe’s electrical needs, they are expected to lower energy costs enough to pay for the project in about 10 years. In reality, the new installation began saving money as soon as it went into operation because a government grant and a rebate from Ameren Missouri covered the project’s approximately $181,000 price tag. “The Pointe...

Five Schools in Missouri Choose to Go for Solar Energy The fall semester of 2012 will allow the students of five district schools from Saint Louis, Missouri, to experience what it feels like to have their classrooms powered by means of green energy coming from the sun. Due to the fact that all of these five schools are expected to receive financial aid from the government so as to implement this project, it seems that in the end the schools’ administrations will be faced with an all-gain, no-loss situation. Thus, without having to set...
