Green Energy is the Future. Period.

There's a common political phrase that's always amused me: the "green energy debate."
There are many half-truths and outright fallacies in political discourse, it's not like that's a big secret or anything. However, it's hard to say if there is a bigger example of pure nonsense than arguing whether or not we should be using green, or renewable energy sources.
The long and short of it is, we have no choice. For civilization to continue and thrive, we have to break our addiction to fossil fuels. Not only because they are by nature extremely limited, but because of the immense threat they pose to the environment.
What does this mean for entrepreneurs and business owners then? Only that we are poised for what could possibly be an economic upheaval / shift bigger than the Industrial Revolution.
The fact is, industries that revolve around coal and gas power, fracking, even nuclear power, are all going to go under. This is inevitable.
In their place, we will see an array of industries pop up that will redefine the entire economy. Solar panel manufacturing and optimization, advanced desalinization methods, city greening, wind turbine installation, and much more. Green-based industry is going to explode, and rightfully so.

Anyone who is advantageous enough to catch these trends as they are happening will reap the rewards, not only financially, but morally. There's nothing more satisfying than knowing that what you're grinding for and making a living off of is also helping others, as well as animals and the environment we all live in.

Start Local

Investing in green energy doesn't just apply to your personal business. It's a mindset. One of the best ways to start investing your energy and money holistically is to seek out your nearest organic farm and support them by purchasing their produce. This is critical. Small farms need support, and there's no better way to show it by eating what they grow.

This is a small measure, but it speaks volumes. Mindset can be everything. Perhaps after you find a farm you like, you can support them through your business in some way. Digital Sages gives discounts to green businesses in need of websites and promotional material, for example. This model doesn't apply to every business sector, but you might be surprised what you come up with. There's always ways to help people if you take the time to think about it. Even if it's something as small as providing a blanket discount for your services to their employees. What you send out will come back to you.

Go Solar NOW

Often when we talk financial freedom, we have to speak in the long term. The decisions you make now can reap great rewards down the road. In that regard, investing in solar power is an absolute no-brainer. The 20-year savings projection for switching to Solar ranges from $7,484 to over $30,000 depending on where you live in the country. It's one of the few true garunteed investments you can make. Regardless of the initial cost (which varies from state to state and country to country) you will save money in the long run.

This is beneficial for a number of reasons, not least of which because it cuts your dependence on the Electrical grid, reduces your carbon footprint, and even allows you to potentially give energy back to the grid in order to ease the burden on the system. They are also relatively easy to install and maintain, especially compared to gasoline generators.
