Going Green together- Monthly Updates.

My Rain barrel is full and ready to be used. The solar lights and Bug Zapper are up and running. We have one More Rain Barrel to install this weekend.Doing well on the no plastic bags accepted. Although I need to work on the families role in this endeavor.
Our Solar Panels have been doing their work at keeping the Utilities bills down.
The Stats:
lifetime energy (since November 9,2009) 2,969 kWh

We've reduced emissions equivalent to:
1. Planting 55 seedlings grown for 10 years.
2. Not driving 4,879 miles in a standard car.

We've reduced your carbon footprint equivalent to:
4,927 pounds of CO2

From April7 to May6, 2010 we produce 758 kilowatt hours. that's an increase of 125 KWH more than last month! Mr Sun is getting better at this and We are doing our part.
We are looking into a new solar project for our Water heater. Stay tune.


  1. Awesome ! It's our goal to get a rainbarrel this year!
