Electricity is one of the most complex, difficult subjects to grasp.
Alternative energy is even more tricky!
I’m still always checking and doubling checking the facts, and I spent 2 years consulting on an electricity project in Alberta, Canada!
I like to think I know a lot about energy thanks to my experience with that project and the research I’ve done since, but man it’s still tough.
That’s why I’m dedicating this section of the site to informational articles about solar and wind energy, to help get you up to speed with as little friction as possible. The articles here are backed up by facts and studies, but are written as simply as I can make them, so you get the right information, fast.
