Build Your Own Wind and Power - Kaua`i Style

Well, the bailout passed this morning and hopefully that will put a little wind back in all of our sales. As I've heard so often the last week, it's the end of the beginning, meaning we are making a start in freeing up our credit markets and getting back to a more normal sense of business though it may hardly be normal for quite some time.

For those of you interested in using the physical wind, there's an upcoming workshop at Malama Kaua`i, one of Kaua`i's leading sustainability organization located on Kuawa Rd. in Kilauea. If you want to follow sustainability on Kauai, you might want to subscribe to  Malama Kauai's newsletter. Here's the scoop:

HOW TO BUILD YOUR OWN SOLAR AND WIND POWER SYSTEM!
Learn how independent power works!

Join Doctor Steve Blake of Maui for this all day workshop on Sunday, October 12th, from 10-4 at the Mālama Kaua`i Community Center. Steve will be on-island for one day only to share his mana`o

·    How to harness the WIND
·    How much SOLAR power do you need?
·    What about HYDRO power?
·    Storing energy you generate
·    The latest in Solar Thermal Energy
·    Important CONSERVATION tips
·    How does it ALL TIE TOGETHER?

CAN YOU BRING DOWN YOUR ELECTRIC BILL?
COME FIND OUT!

For details on what will be covered at the workshop, read this studentʻs account.

Workshop is by donation, but we would like to at least cover the costs of airfare and meals for Steve and his wife. There will be a potluck lunch break at noon. Locally grown food is appreciated! RSVP to andrea@malamakauai.org or 828-0685.

Thanks for doing that. BTW, I love Ashville. My wife used to life near there in a former life.

Ronnie,

The Ted spread got worse today after the $700 billion flush was passed:
