The electric grid is “turned off” and Nigeria is facing a power blackout.

Nigeria News:

Nigerians are facing more power blackouts, not by natural disaster but by suspected militants. The Utorogo Gas Plant, operated by shell petroleum is now wasted and power in Nigeria has dropped to 1,400 megawatts. It needs approximately 7000 for a stable electric grid.

It's very unfortunate these incidents have and continue to take place, natural or not they are a prime example of “light out”. They should remind us how we can better prepare ourselves NOW and plan for emergency electricity, but more importantly, of how much humans need to change in order to survive.

I hope for the best to everyone affected by Nigeria’s energy crisis. Let’s hope their power, solar or not, is restored soon.

Residential Solar Panels – Are solar panels feasible for residential use?

Yes! Solar Panels are realistic for residential use and they are skyrocketing in popularity. Not only because you virtually wipe out your electric bill but because you are making an investment in true sustainable housing. Building and living in an efficient solar home is by far one of the best investments and decisions you can make.

Think of the future generations who inherit (if you will) our decisions and actions regarding earth’s environment. What if we don’t change now and our actions are of no benefit to our environment but only for selfish ways. What will their very possible future hold if we don’t change NOW?

We CAN change the future. Learn how at Earth4Energy.

“Well great, I’d love to live in a solar powered home but residential solar panels are just so darn expensive and besides, I'd rather buy a solar power kit and built it myself. I can't just whip out $5,000.“

Truth be told, solar panels can be built for much cheaper than you might think -- and better yet, most if not all of the parts can be purchased at your local hardware store. Sweet!

Let me ask you a quick question. How much to you think it will cost to build a solar panel? Seriously now think about it. Do you think residential solar panels worth the cost?

I initially thought it would cost about $1,500 to build a solar panel and the long and short term benefits are just too much to mention here. The information I discovered really surprised me. I guarantee you they are much cheaper than you think.
