Want to get solar power into your home energy mix but can't even dream of affording it? darkmagess tipped me off to this site, where you can sign up for free solar panels. What they do is to install a complete solar system for you. You, in return, agree to pay them whatever you pay now for electricity. You can set the contract length and there's a buyout option at the end. So you can think of it as investing now so that you can affordably buy it out and get closer to being off the grid in the future, or it could be a way to make a green choice with no additional cost to you, or even if you don't care about the solar aspect at all, it could just be a way of locking in your current rate so that even as energy costs rise you pay the same amount for electricity that you do now for however long the contract is.

I know that a lot of people can't do this. On the one hand, it's only available in the U.S. and only available in some parts of the U.S. On the other hand, you have to have the right to do it -- this probably means that the best renters and people in condos can do is to share the information with their property owners. However, for the rest of you, what's the downside?

If you're *not* one of the folks who can do this, maybe you can share the URL around to folks who can.

Low Impact Living Some of this comes off heavy handed, but there's good stuff here too.

This looks a bit like a hobbit hole. I think it's adorable. There are some good links off of this website as well.
