Fellow Spinach Lovers,
For those of you considering constructing or purchasing a home (like El C. just did!) or upgrading your home’s energy systems or appliances, you should take the time to view this excellent resource: http://www.dsireusa.org/. Where ever you are, this source can provide you with information about local, state, and federal supports to help you move forward into the 21st century while reducing your utility bill and providing you with a little extra green for your diet. Some of these credits can reward you with up to a 30% credit and no cost ceiling (see some of the federal PTCs).
You may notice that some of these incentives expire at the end of this year–meaning your systems must be installed by December 31, 2011. So hurry to take advantage. Or, lobby Congress to ensure these great provisions are not allowed to expire.
