President Obama Spotlights Energy Job Energy Auditor, Green Careers, Solar, Wind, Financing

Green job spotlight: Energy auditor

Green jobs are going to be one of the primary ways the middle class benefits from the economic recovery. That’s why they’re the focus of the Middle Class Task Force’s first meeting tomorrow, in Philadelphia.
But even though the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was just signed, there are previews of the impact all over the country.
The Philadelphia Inquirer today profiles Suechada Poynter, a 39-year-old woman who is a home energy auditor -- she checks for air leaks and improperly functioning furnaces to make buildings more energy efficient -- exactly the kind of job the ARRA will create:
"Green jobs have opened a lot of doors for a lot of lower-class people to get into this field," said Poynter, a Thai immigrant and mother of seven who lives in Philadelphia's Logan section and earns $11 an hour for her work.
"I'd tell him to open more doors to get more people into this field," she said. Passionate about the environment, she is studying architecture in college. "This is just the beginning of a bigger door," she said.

Solar Advice for Free: Solar v. Labor: Issue Heats Up Again
By David Brands
On the other hand, I am a solar power advocate. It would be great if everyone in solar made a good living and many are. However, the major component of any PV system is the panels and it is hard for the production from them to compete with coal, natural gas and nuclear power even ... The logical answer is to install more and more solar electric systems which requires more and more panels--and other components--to be manufactured which will bring the cost per watt down. ...

Something Very Big and Very Wonderful Is About To Happen To Solar PV

That's Right...

You heard it here first.

Once or twice in a person's lifetime, they meet someone, or discover
something, that becomes a Quantum Leap forward for mankind.
(If your real lucky it happens twice) Cause chances are good
you will not see it for what it is, the first time. 

But if you get that second chance and see it for what it is...You'll
move heaven and earth to get a place at that table, the next time
you see it, if there is a next time.

In the Mid 70's it was a machine called The Pong Machine...The first
electronic game converted in a huge building in an industrial park, which
one day would be known as the center of the technology world, The Silicon
Valley, CA. 

It's the story of a huge building with a production line..just on concrete, of Sony
TV's all lined up in a long roll, being taken apart, put into stand up cabinets
after something called a computer chip had been added.

If you were there at the time, you would have seen what I can only discribe
in that day, a hippy at every TV.  As a "regular businessman"  you can only
imagine my surprise when the lunch break came and people started playing
basketball end to end, full cour,  in the mostly empty building.  The smell of
pot, filled the air. 

The only question that came to my mind, at that moment was, "What the hell
is going on here?"

So, I guess the question you have to ask yourself,  is....  What do you want to
be sharing with your grandkids 20 years from now?  Stories, or a new
planet and a fortune?

Someone once said...

Some people watch things happen..
Some people make things happen..

Most people just sit back amazed
and wonder, "What the hell just happened?"

Green Careers...Become An Energy Auditor Now...Large Dollars For You !!!!

Obama's Energy Policies, Solar, Wind, Renewable Energy, Green Careers, Leasing, Alternative Energy Funding

The past month has been quite a deal. Road trips to St. Louis and back, now Las Vegas and back. Finally made my girlfriend of 8 years, my new bride. Just spent a couple of nights in old Las Vegas, Golden Nugget. Very nice, right in town, next to court house and clerks offices.

My Crown Vic performed as always, 1500 miles round trip and did not miss a beat. Gas pretty cheap across the trip, around $2.10 a gallon, sticks to my mind. If you've never made the trip, we came back to Northern CA via Nevada, driving from Las Vegas north to Reno and then straight to Redding, Via Susanville, from Reno. (four hours, from Reno to home.) A meeting in Vegas had already cost Virginia a day of work, but it was best, since the drive back, even letting her sleep, was tough. Why do it? People ask. I did quite a lot of flying in the military, and later as a sale rep for Louisiana-Pacific Corporation, but I just don't appreciate flying like I once did, and hearing it's the safest mode of transportation, after every air craft crash does very little to change my thoughts on the matter. Add to it, the shake-down pre-flight searches and the power you give these airlines, once on the plane, over your freedoms and liberties, sitting for hours, trapped on the flight line, unable to get off the plane, I just can't agree with. Other issues I will not get into.

I would like to ask my FED Radio guest to forgive my not being on the air, at least
with me, these past two weeks, ask for you to tune in next week and we'll be discussing funding energy projects. Now let's talk Financing here...

Vast, large sums of money are currently being sent to state governments, cities and counties across the nation, by the Feds. A recent call to county officials in St. Louis, I discovered, 150 projects submitted for funding request, the day after Pres.
Obama signed the stimulus into effect. We requested $20 million for loan guarantees to purchase 5ea shopping centers and adding $5 million in renewables to
the centers. Our plan is to use these centers as working renewable energy demos, taking space in each center and using them for jobs and training programs in the middle of 3 million folks. This is a perfect example of what President Obama calls private sector job creation. I was told that there would not be enough money to fund even the 150 packages already submitted, however, I was also invited to send
our plan, unique, that we are not asking for anything but the backing of a purchase loan. This project might be the only one, that has large positive returns as the
utility bill alone on the centers will top $800,000 dollars this year without the
projects we are proposing. But I suspect, cash flow, is of no interest to these folks when giving out these funds, which I expect do not have to ever be paid back.
You would like with all the bail out of banks, some bank could be prompted to stand behind such a project. Although I was active in helping President Obama to get elected (search YESWECANSOLVEIT google) I still have not made a connection to help in this search. Not anything solid yet.

I am also becoming more involved in a funding project having to do with a new form of solar electric generation. Very exciting and well be involved in the sales and marketing of the system as soon as it's ready. Increases in solar pv effectiveness are written when anyone is able to increase their collector effectiveness by 2 or 5% more effective, still most systems are in the 20% effective imagine my excitement becoming involved with a product that in rated 80%. This statement
should shake the very foundations of the industry, but my following here is still relatively small and we are not being too vocal about this Quantum Leap forward in
solar electric generation, solid in the knowledge that others, will be doing this
on our behalf, soon. I will be looking for a fair, equity partner in the $40 million dollar range and the search has already begun. Interested, qualified, parties should contact me here.
