Have you seen the latest news about SolarCity's deal with the U.S. military to install solar on 160,000 military housing units?  CNN reported that the deal is 100% privately financed (with federal backing) and that SolarCity will put up to 160,000 rooftop solar installations on top of privately-run military housing complexes at 124 military bases across 34 states. That is an astounding number of installations!

I was able to participate in the Large Building Infiltration Presentation at ACI, which conducted a Commercial Building Energy Audit on a 25,000-square-foot commercial building. I participated on a technician level with my friends at Energy Conservatory. I was allowed me to be a "fly on the wall," and it was fascinating to see five Minneapolis Blower Doors in operation. This commercial energy audit was done to the Army Corp of Engineers Standard, which is the best available benchmark for performing a large building energy audit.  Read more: Commercial Energy Audit – Large Building Blower Door Testing »

The Future of Green Jobs: As Goes California, Goes The Nation

Green jobs.

It seems like we never stop hearing the phrase. The environmental movement is largely billed as a successful way to create jobs and save the planet at the same time. However, since this sustainability shift is relatively new, the number or quality of green jobs created has been ambiguous. This leaves many wondering if the promise of green jobs is just a bunch of wind turbine generated hot air.

Rest assured it is not.  Read more: The Future of Green Jobs »
