Switch low energy bulb on in the sky
http://www.ucartoonit.com – This action cartoon drawn on the ucartoonit drawing board tells it's time to switch on that big, lifetime, low energy bulb in the sky. And generate home and business electricity right on the rooftop.
Solar installations increased more than 1,000% since 2009. Solar prices have plunged 80% since 2009, giving solar installers the ability to offer customers solar electricity and clean power at lower cost than coal in a lot of states.
States like Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, D.C., Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington.
In these states, people and businesses are paying for solar energy like their current electric bill. Solar companies offering this plan install your system for free. And maintain the solar system. They own it. You pay for the solar power by the month like you pay for electricity now – only lower, there's actually a savings!
It could introduce a shift from centralized plants to decentralized rooftops, putting the source of power right where it's used and cutting the losses from sending it down miles of wire. And solar runs at peak demand times, during the day, especially summer days. And that's when generation costs are the highest.
It's a clean, renewable energy source that doesn’t pollute the air kids will have to breathe. Your cartoons can go a long way to make solar electricity available to all states to cut the carbon menacing kids future.
