The midterms are over—but your role isn't

With the midterm elections now over, there’s a good chance you’re in one of three camps: 1) those that are thrilled over a victory, 2) those feeling dispirited about a loss, or 3) those that have already moved on to thinking about Thanksgiving plans. But just because you’ve cast your vote, this doesn’t mean you have to cast aside your civic mindedness until November 2020.

Going electric

It's time for schools to hop on the (electric) bus

When someone says the words “electric vehicle,” a giant, lumbering, yellow kid-wagon isn’t the first—or the slickest—product that comes to mind. You might not have even known that someone, somewhere, was making such a vehicle. But here’s the honest truth: electric school buses are here, they’re awesome, and the case for schools adopting them is more compelling than ever.

How my weed eater ushered me into the 21st century

The broken cord just hung there, yellowed with age and not sure of what to do or what to be. This particular cord had held for seven years and had served its purpose well—until this balmy July afternoon.

Why we need to electrify everything

What does it take to get fossil fuels out of our lives? A big part of the answer is “the electrification of everything”. No, it’s not just industry jargon—it’s a key concept worth understanding, as it's playing a key role in our transition to a society powered by clean, renewable energy.

"Local Energy": why it's happening now

We hear a lot these days about “going local.” We might shop at the farmers market or choose to support mom-and-pop businesses in our community. Yet when it comes to energy, we usually just flip the switch or fill up the tank, without thinking much about it. Fortunately, there are rewarding ways we can go local with our energy, too.

As governments, businesses, and investors “take ambition to the next level”, it’s time for American households to do the same

On Friday, California Governor Jerry Brown ended the Global Climate Action Summit he organized in San Francisco with a rallying cry: “This week, cities, states, businesses, and nonprofits stepped up and took strong action.... Now it’s time to take this momentum back home.”

The new face of energy

The energy transition is happening. Across the world we are seeing radical shifts in how we produce our energy, and how we use. Energy democracy has come to the American household in the form of new products like electric vehicles and affordable solar panels. Products like these provide us with energy independence, more money in our wallets, and a healthier future. This is the new face of energy.

Wind surpasses hydro

    Wind surpassed hydropower energy as the biggest source of renewable electricity here in the U.S. thanks to a tripling of wind capacity since 2008.1 You may be wondering where are all these wind turbines going up? Well, the top 3 states are Texas, Iowa, and Oklahoma.1So how much power are we actually talking about here? Well, wind now has the capacity to power over 24 million American homes.2 And with wind and solar adding capacity faster than fossil fuels the power industry3 is undergoing a major and profound transformation.
