Green Dude Segment: Eco Ed Schwartz – Residential Solar Energy 201

Green Dude Eco-Ed joined us once again and did the second in his series on residential solar energy. He talked in more detail about how important it is to invest in solar energy and the different ways to do it.

  1. State & Federal Incentives: There are many federal and state rebates offered to homeowners who invest in solar panels. Who knew? New Jersey is the second best state for refunds right behind California. It is very possible to earn your initial investment back quicker than you think. Go to the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Energy to find out about incentives where you live.
  2. Lease: If it is too expensive to purchase solar panels, you can always lease for a more budget friendly monthly charge.
  3. PPAs Power Purchase Agreements: PPAs are financial agreements in which the solar panel developer owns, operates, and maintains the panels, and the customer agrees to let the developer to essentially rent their roof.
  4. New Construction: Green Dude Eco-Ed also had a tip for architects building new homes-Design a house so if the owner doesn’t want solar panels on it now, another owner can easily install them in the future.

Feature Interview: Mariel Hemingway

Mariel Hemingway

We finally got to talk to one of our Green Diva heroes, the beautiful and inspiring actress, author and activist, Mariel Hemingway. She is one busy lady these days with a documentary about her life as a Hemingway, Running From Crazy, and her new book, The WillingWay and many worthy projects in between.

The WillingWay is born from Mariel and partner Bobby Williams’ passion for healthy, conscious living. Her passion came through the airwaves and we were all feeling it. We loved hearing that it wasn’t another ‘self-help’ book touting “this is THE way to happiness . . . ” Mariel quickly described that The Willing Way is all about helping people find their OWN path to passionate, conscious, healthy living.

Mariel is an awesome Green Diva, and we are all in love her. She said she will come to the studio and do the whole hour show with us when she is in New York promoting the book in April. Let’s hope we can get into her busy schedule in April!
