Could the Entire World Really Run on Solar Power?

At our house in Cebu we just finished installing 12 solar panels that generate 1200 watts of electric at maximum.  So far so good! Have you started saving energy and greenhouse gas too?

With the Philippines prone to regular brownouts it is much better to use quiet solar which needs no fuel standby by like generators require (and gas gets old and dangerous, noisy) and generators are hard to start and cost money to operate even after purchase while solar you can even hook up with electric company and sell them excess and keeps paying you back in contrast to generators!

It’s pretty safe to say that we all know that we have to find an alternative to fossil fuels as soon as possible, and the most viable answer to the planet’s energy needs is visible to us any time we look upward. The amount of solar energy that hits just 1 square mile of this planet over the course of a year is equal to 4 million barrels of oil, and the energy that hits the Earth in a mere 40 minutes can fuel all of humanity’s energy needs for a year. Isn’t that incredible? Check out the infographic below to learn more about all the ways that solar power is the way to go, and how we can go about making it a reality worldwide.

I come up with about 2500 square miles for the US. There are more than 40,000 square miles in the Mohave desert alone. Presumably about 50% could be used for solar.

You Can Turn A $2000 Shipping Container Into An Epic Off-Grid Home

Why not in the Philippines too as a quick way to move build and move in? Lots of shipping containers here and great business idea

 The shipping container prototype can sleep six and includes a bathroom unit, kitchen, living space, and an outdoor deck. The unit is also equipped with solar power, micro heat recovery units, back boilers, and hot water heating. Put some solar panels on top and use it anywhere in the Philippines.

 Check this blog out for more links and details for an excellent business in the Philippines all over the country and reasonable price and almost instant move in... Wonder why mobile homes couldn't be developed here as well?

Facebook's group-based selling is now a quick post away

Facebook's group-based selling is now a quick post away

Facebook is clearly extra-serious about its efforts to beat internet sale sites at their own game through groups. As part of an update rolling out over the months ahead, the social network's For Sale Groups will let you tap a simple Sell button to hawk your wares -- from there, you'll just have to write a description and set basic details like the pick-up location and price. You'll also have an easy way to mark items as sold, or to sift through your history if you don't remember whether or not you sold that table lamp. Are these enough to make you ditch Craigslist?
