Couple Builds Energy Efficient Passive Solar Home - Green Building
 
09:36
In this video we meet Casey & Natasha, a conscious couple who built a passive solar home near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In addition to orienting their house to face south, they installed overhangs that block the sun to keep it cool during summer months and allow the sun to enter and heat the house during winter months. They also installed a 10 kW solar system that sells clean electricity back to the grid through Ontario's MicroFIT Program and the revenue helps cover their own utility bills. The house was built to Passive House standards and is currently pending certification. You can learn more about Passive House here: http://www.passivehouse.ca/fundamentals/ The exterior walls of this house are 20" thick and are insulated using Roxul insulation which is made locally, better for the environment, can get wet, and has less flame retardants than traditional fiberglass insulation, which means cleaner air quality in the home. To maximize the energy efficiency of their home, they installed triple glazed windows, a drain water heat recovery system, an air source heat pump water heater, and a bioethanol fireplace. They also chose sustainable alternatives like concrete countertops instead of granite, and reclaimed pine flooring instead of using new wood. Last but not least, they designed their house to be completely fossil fuel-free which means that they don't use any fossil fuels to power or heat their home. Casey & Natasha are building a conscious group of companies to align their work life with their personal values. Their companies include The Conscious Builder, the Conscious Living podcast and the Conscious Store (coming soon!). http://cgreyconstruction.com http://caseyplusnatasha.com Thanks for watching!

12 Most Affordable Ways to Reduce the Cost of Building a New House on a Budget
 
03:31
This video brings to you 12 Most Affordable Ways to Reduce the Cost of Building a New House on a Budget. Some of the most Affordable Ways to Reduce the Cost of Building a New House on a Budget include: 1. Find a Good Architect Allow me to draw the following analogy before I start; Most of us when we are sick, we visit the best doctor, or when we have a court case, we hire the best lawyer. But when it comes to building our dream house on the contrary we go for the cheap. A good architect will give you; • A Good Design – A good design builds a good house. • Efficient floor plan- Optimal room sizes without space wastage • Sustainable Design – Low running costs during occupancy • Good Finishes - Finishes carry the biggest cost of the house 2. Keep the Design Simple Most times in design, Less is always More. Keep the design simple but not simplistic. Too much zig and zag means more costs. Take off what you do not need and leave the essentials without compromising. A simple design entails: • Floor Plan – Square/Rectangular plans are cheaper to build than circular plans • Open plan living – Means less walling, more daylighting and sociable living environment. • Space Utilization – Use some spaces for multiple functions such as; Dining Cum Study • Roof Design- Complex roof design means more roofing materials leading to more costs. 3. Hire The Right Builder/Contractor This is the BIGGEST and most IMPORTANT decision for anyone planning to build their dream house. Hire a builder/contractor that will listen to you. This means he will build a house you want and not what he thinks you want. A good builder will guarantee you: • Minor Variations- A home build on Budget • No time overruns- A home build within the contract period • Good Workmanship- A home build without shortcuts • Experienced – Good connections with subcontractors 4. Bid out Your Cost Have quotations / bids from potential builders and compare their quotes. Remember cheaper is not necessarily the best. A good quote will tell you something about your potential builder; • A low Quote- Could mean Poor workmanship resulting future expensive repairs and maintenance • Optimal Quote- Could mean a builders discount and good connections with suppliers • A High Quote- Could mean too many subcontractors involved or building materials are subpar 6. Shop for Fixtures and Fittings Yourself The choice of house fittings is as subjective as the house owner. Therefore it makes economic sense for you to buy most of them yourself. Keep an eye for annual sale or discount at your local hardware. These may include: • Floor and Wall Tiles- Colours and Designs • Toilets , Wash Hand Basins, Kitchen Sinks • Inbuilt Ovens and Cooker • Kitchen and Dhobi/Laundry sinks • Flat Pack Kitchen Cabinets and Wardrobes 7. Smart material choices The choice of materials from the outset is key to managing costs of your building materials. The choices vary from: • Buying your materials yourself- Use Coupons, discounts or annual sale • Salvaging used materials- Recycled materials and Second hand fixtures • Choose a Forgiving Aesthetic- Low cost and Low maintenance 7. Small is Smarter. Keep it small. Just how much space for you need for your new house. For good Green credentials, building small is always better. • Scale Down- Get rid of stuff/space you do not need. • Climate- Design for the regional climate. Do you need a Basement/Garage in the tropics? • Space Utilization – Use some spaces for multiple functions such as; Dining Cum Study 8. Choose Your Friends Avoid peer pressure when building your house. Most people would be tempted to build what a friend has built, or Insist on the Architect designing for them a house like their friends. Since design is subjective, go with your gut feeling and pick what fits tour taste and preference as opposed to copy and paste. Unless your friends are contributing to your mortgage payment or construction loan, don’t fall to peer-pressure just because you want to feel like you fit-in. 9. Buy Stock Plans If you can’t afford an architect, architect designed stock plans like sheltermode.com offer an alternative affordable option. Most stock plans go for a fraction of the cost of professional fees and can be amended on site to suite the client’s needs with marginal costs. Don’t fall prey to plan books and articles in your local store or street vendor. Most of these books are outdated and lack any serious professional input in design and specific.

Brothers design low-cost wind turbine to power Indian homes
 
05:36
(30 May 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4036405 LEAD IN: Two brothers in the southern Indian state of Kerala are encouraging residents to harness the power of wind and live off locally-produced, green electricity. They've created a low-cost wind turbine which can generate enough electricity to power a home. STORY-LINE: Brothers, Arun and Anoop George, are busy inspecting their proud creation; a small wind turbine priced at an affordable cost of around $750 USD. Measuring the size of a ceiling fan and priced at a touch more than the latest Apple iPhone, this wind turbine can generate three to five kilowatt hours of electricity daily - enough to power a home. Arun says he plans to introduce the wind turbine to the market for a little more than $750 USD. A price he claims will make it more affordable to Indian consumers whose only other option is imports, which sometimes cost over $3,000 USD. "We have made this turbine at a cost that is almost unheard of in the country so far," says Arun, the CEO and founder of Avant Garde Innovations, an India-based clean energy company. "So we are targeting to make this available at around 50,000 rupees (approx. $750USD) per kilo watt, for the common man. "And that's the kind of a revolution we are trying to bring into the industry. By making clean energy affordable to the common man. "Whatever power they produce for the rest of the life of the wind turbine - which is around 20 years - will be free electricity to them. "So that's one of the big advantages of this. And secondly, this is clean energy. In fact, our world - as we all know - is trying to embrace renewable energy. "So, this is going to be like a grassroots movement, which will enable a lot of people in our state and our country to start using renewable energy and reduce our dependency on fossil fuel generated electricity." One of the biggest players in the wind energy market, India is rapidly increasing its wind energy capacity, backed by a huge 4,671 miles coastline and high wind density on its western coast, according to clean energy research firm, Energy Alternatives India. According to the Global Wind Energy Council, India ranks fourth in terms of global installed wind power capacity, after China, the US, and Germany. The country added around 3,300 megawatts in wind power capacity during the period 2015-16, bringing the total up to 26,743 megawatts. That's higher than the total wind energy produced in Latin America and the Caribbean. Despite that, The World Bank, says one fourth of all households - especially in rural areas - have no access to electricity. In 2015, over 70 percent of electricity production was from coal sources. India is also home to frequent power blackouts. In 2012, 620 million people were left without power for hours. Suresh Kumar Kumaresan is a wind energy expert. He claims India is yet to harness the full potential of wind power. He believes the country's government should increase wind energy subsidies to boost the sector. "In Indian context, I would say that we are developing, we are doing so many things, but it is not sufficient or we didn't tap the full potential," he says. "I think partly because the issue is the government is not very, I would say, supportive in terms of giving subsidies and things like that, which I think recently they started doing, but it's not in a full-blown state." At the Madre De Deus Church in Thiruvananthapuram, Avant Garde Innovations installed their trademark wind turbine to supply power to the church itself. Father Nicholas Pulluvila says using the turbine is in line with Pope Francis' recent 2015 encyclical, which encouraged greater use of cleaner energy sources. "We have to hear what the Pope says," he says.

Family of 7 Living Completely Off-Grid in Northern Canada!
 
10:09
In this video, we meet Jeff, Rose, and their 5 girls who are living completely off grid on a 40-acre piece of land in Northern British Columbia, Canada. They built their own off-grid house for less than $25,000 with cedar posts sunk into the ground like a pole barn, log rafters, plywood, foam insulation, and a living roof. The house was so affordable to build because they didn't have to excavate or pour a concrete foundation, dig a well, or install a septic system. They have 2 solar power systems to power everything they need. The first solar system is just one solar panel that generates 12-Volt power for their lights, cell phones, and music player. The larger system is a 2.5 Kilowatt solar power system installed on their shop roof with a lithium ion battery bank that powers their full-sized fridge, a chest freezer, washing machine, as well as a mixer, blender and a toaster. They have a backup generator but they only have to use it for about 40 hours per year during prolonged cloudy or snowy periods. All of the water the family uses is rainwater collected from their shop roof and stored in a tank under the shop floor to keep it cool. They carry buckets of water into the house for cooking, dishes and showers. To produce clean drinking water, they filter their rainwater in a passive water filter called a Burkey (check them out here: http://www.berkeyfilters.com). The grey water from their kitchen sink and shower drains into a shallow grey water field in the backyard. They have 2 composting bucket toilets and they sprinkle sawdust into the buckets after each use to absorb moisture and prevent smells. For heat, they cut their own firewood for their Blaze King catalytic wood stove, and for their antique cookstove in the kitchen that they use for cooking and baking. Jeff and Rose homeschool their 5 girls for a few hours each day and also ensure that their kids are learning diverse life skills like growing their own food, caring for horses, raising bees, and more. We're very impressed with the clever solutions this family has come up with to make off-grid living seem so easy.

New Home Construction Process Tips
 
05:30
New home construction is often something that people go into with hesitation. Here are a few new construction process tips to help in the new construction process. Many hear horror stories about backed up sewage, cracked foundations, and see scathing reviews on builder Facebook pages. Well, as you guessed there's many misconceptions, BUT I'm going to give you tips on how to navigate the new home construction process, so that it goes as smoothly as possible. Pre-planning Choose A Good Builder - Just like any business, you want to choose someone who's been in business for a long time, has a large presence, and has a great reputation (for the most part - there's always going to be a few haters). In my experience, builders that are "regional" tend to have the best warranties and customer service. They aren't so big that they've lost sight of there "vision" and are bloated, and they aren't so small that they don't have the resources to compete with smaller builders. Re-sale value- A new home appreciates just like any other real-estate asset. I would stay away from luxury homes, UNLESS you go into with the assumption that you can hang on to it if things gets rough. What steps can I take to make sure my home doesn't wind up like the horror stories? Make sure it has a good warranty and that you hire an independent home inspector. How much more expensive is a "custom" vs a production builder? With building a true custom home (picking out a lot, modifying floor plans, and building to taste) will be more expensive then a production build. Many regional builders will build on lots outside a subdivision. Most people go the production route because they're generally in better locations and have amenities. 2. Go on site Do I need to bring a realtor with me? It wouldn't hurt. Many times you can tell the quality of the builder by how well they work with realtors. I'd stay away from builders that will "incentivise" you to not work with a realtor. What can I do to negotiate the the best deal? The vast majority of times the builder won't want you to negotiate on price, but they do want to negotiate on things outside. This when homes 20-30 homes are being sold in a close space, gradual concessions will drag down the property values. Try to negotiate a fence, maybe a fridge, and or exotic granite tops. How do I actually purchase the house? You're going to sign a purchase agreement or what's called an "Offer to Purchase". In this document, it will outline the deposit, closing-date, and certain stipulations BOTH parties must abide by. If the offer to purchase is written in the builders favor, that may be a red flag. Process Watch out for the closing date - The build date can be postponed, so I'd come to terms with the closing date could be delayed. Make sure that a delay won't put you out on the street or living with mom & dad.

Affordable seniors housing solutions in Atlantic Canada
 
03:09
Mary Lou Keith wanted to stay in rural Shelburne, but there was no affordable seniors’ housing available in her small community in Nova Scotia. Thanks to the work of dedicated volunteers and a non-profit housing organization, Mary Lou now lives at Harbourside Landing, a 40-unit apartment building that meets the housing needs of local seniors. The building, which opened in March 2014, is owned by Atlantic Baptist Housing, a not-for-profit charitable corporation that builds affordable seniors’ housing in small communities throughout Atlantic Canada. A local committee worked with Atlantic Baptist Housing to create an alternative housing solution for Shelburne. Atlantic Baptist Housing used Seed Funding to engage an architect for preliminary designs and construction plans. This project received financial assistance from CMHC.

400 watt wind turbine from aliexpress - installation, output test and review
 
05:07
These turbines look good but barely generate 10 % of their advertised output. I suspect the included charge controller being connected to the battery uses more power than the turbine can produce in an average month. Waste of money, better off with another solar panel. I plan to ditch the generator and bolt the blades to my own modified smartdrive permanent magnet generator, should make around 500 watts in a good wind.

Number of "energy independent villages" increase
 
01:45
It's not that difficult these days to find households using solar panels to harness the power of the sun for green energy. But how about an entire village that's eco friendly and energy independent? Kim Mok-yeon takes us to some self sufficient towns. Some 43 households live in this energy independent town. There are solar energy facilities installed on the roof of every house. Residents can save a lot of money as they use the energy created through these facilities at a cheaper price, and can even use the energy left the following month. ed: Devin "Before we installed it, we paid about 84 U.S. dollars a month. But now we pay less than 20, so we can save about 60 dollars a month." On top of the community hall, there is a larger Photovoltaic Power Generation System installed, which can create up to 3,000 kilowatts per hour. The town sells the energy obtained to the Korea Electric Power Corporation in return for more than 200 U.S. dollars which they use for the development of the village. "It's still difficult for residents to pay for the entire costs of the renewable energy facilities, so currently the respective provinces are paying for 90 percent of the expenses." The government is supporting the installation of such renewable energy facilities as it can help villages become energy independent and can also help in saving the environment. As of today, there are 10 towns that call themselves energy independent in the Gyeonggi-do province. The government plans to increase the number of these energy independent towns to 100 by 2030.

Chris Daggett on Affordable Housing
 
06:18
TRENTON—Chris Daggett, independent candidate for Governor, today unveiled a comprehensive plan for overhauling New Jerseys affordable housing policies to prevent sprawl and to more closely align the goals with the objectives of the State Plan. In unveiling a detailed housing policy, Daggett said affordable housing needs to be located in centers and along transit corridors with ready access to jobs, transportation and recreation opportunities. The creation of affordable housing units should not conflict with other state policies, such as smart growth, open space preservation and infrastructure investment. "After 35 years, the landmark Mt. Laurel doctrine requiring municipalities to provide a fair share of affordable housing remains sound, but conditions are very different today," Daggett said. "It is time to develop affordable strategies that can be seamlessly woven into the fabric of State Plan policies and promote, rather than undermine, its goals." Too often, the states current affordable housing regulations are driven by false assumptions and fail to account for new population trends, he said. The state Council on Affordable Housing projects 52,000 new jobs will be created every year when, in fact, 65,700 jobs have been lost in New Jersey in the last five years, Daggett said. To ascertain the real housing needs, Daggett would convene a Housing Policy Task Force, comprised of all housing stakeholders, to gather facts and accurate, updated data on housing trends, foreclosures in New Jersey, and other information needed to address the needs of workforce housing. His plan would also mandate that once fair share housing obligations are met, a communitys zoning could not be overridden by court decisions. An appellate court decision regarding a case from Easthampton in Burlington County last month affirmed that affordable housing must be deemed an "inherently beneficial" use when local governmental bodies consider applications for zoning variances. The ruling has led many local and state officials to be concerned that such a ruling will lead to zoning being overturned to accommodate affordable housing even in COAH compliant communities. The housing policy recommends restoring Regional Contribution Agreements, a practice where towns satisfied their affordable housing obligations by paying other communities to build housing units, on the condition it results in new housing units in the host municipality. "These agreements can fuel urban reinvestment and allow opportunities for affordable housing to be built in mass transit served suburban communities," Daggett said. "RCAs for new units should be permitted statewide." The plan also proposes that government should take advantage of current declining housing values to increase the supply of affordable housing before the next housing market upswing. Such market-driven strategies could include conversions of single-family homes to two-family homes. Single family conversions make more efficient use of existing housing resources and public infrastructure. In addition, families who are in foreclosure prevention programs and in danger of losing their homes should be deemed exempt from COAHs affirmative marketing obligations, not forced to move out and participate in a lottery for their own homes, as is the case today, Daggett said. Finally, the plan recognizes the increasingly important role passenger rail will play in achieving smart growth goals. His plan proposes New Jersey invest in improving and expanding passenger rail service along existing commuter lines and reactivating lines that were discontinued during the time when the sprawl trend took hold.

Zx49 is a one-story single-family house with a garage with an elegant, modernist character. The simple, cubic form has been enriched with facings of natural materials on the facades. Zx49 was designed as an energy-efficient house harmonized with the surroundings. All rooms have large balcony doors, thanks to which their interiors are open to the surrounding garden. A covered terrace enlarges the space with an additional place of rest. The geometric shape of the house has a comfortable and functional interior. A wide entrance hall leads to the day zone - a spacious living room with a partially open kitchen. There is also a handy pantry, a place for wardrobes and a comfortable bathroom with a shower and a washing machine. An additional advantage of the project is a garage accessible directly from the hall. The night zone was clearly separated later in the house. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, each with space for capacious wardrobes, a large communal bathroom with a window and a wardrobe.

Power to the Poor: White House Supports Solar Energy for Low-Income Families - The Minute
 
01:28
The White House has announced a new initiative to help low- and middle-income Americans adopt solar energy. Under the plan, the federal government will support increased access to solar energy in three ways, according to The Hill. The government will triple the capacity of solar and other renewable energy systems installed in federally subsidized housing by 2020. A loan program from the Department of Energy will make borrowing easier for homeowners to make solar improvements by building community solar systems, neighborhood solar farms instead of rooftop panels installed on individual home and businesses. And a national program to help renters get solar energy will be launched. In addition, the administration is setting up another program to train solar industry workers, with a focus on getting the poor into the renewable energy workplace. The overall effort will be underwritten by $520 million from charities, investors, states, and cities. Federal officials also announced 260 additional projects from the private sector and state and local governments to expand solar in low- and moderate-income communities.

Solar Power Continues to Grow in California
 
00:39
According to a new report, the state of California used solar power to meet 50% of its energy needs last month during a single day. According to the state’s most recent figures, California already has well over half a million solar installations in its vicinity. In addition, California also has a number of solar initiatives plans in place, such as the Multi- and Single-family Affordable Solar Housing Program. Recently, California laid out plans to produce 33% of its power using solar panels by the year 2020 and increase that to 50% by 2030. http://www.geek.com/tech/california-briefly-met-50-of-its-energy-needs-with-solar-last-month-1696149/?source http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

How To Understand the Federal Stimulus Package
 
04:42
Watch more Politics 101 videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/151881-How-To-Understand-the-Federal-Stimulus-Package Our economy's in the worst crisis since the Depression, and we need to turn things around. The government moved fast to pass the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Plan – $787 billion of investment and tax cuts that will create 3.5 million jobs. Here are the plan's goals. Step 1: Understand the basics Break the cycle. Right now, consumers are worried about the economy. They aren’t spending, so businesses are struggling. When businesses struggle, people lose jobs. When people lose jobs, they cut their spending. It’s a vicious cycle, one that the recovery package aims to break. Step 2: Job creation Create jobs. The most important part of the package is job creation. The plan includes $150 billion to fund clean energy, technology, and infrastructure projects, which will employ millions of Americans looking for work. Step 3: Move toward a green economy Create green jobs, which put people back to work today, and make us more energy independent in the future. The projects in the package include: Modernizing the country’s electrical grid Developing wind turbines, solar panels, biofuels, and advanced vehicle battery systems Investing in clean water, flood control, and environmental restoration And increasing energy-efficiency in homes and offices. Step 4: Improve infrastructure To compete in a 21st-century economy, we also need to provide jobs that help construct a 21st-century infrastructure using 21st-century technology. The plan includes: Upgrading our crumbling roads and bridges Improving public transit and rail systems Modernizing the health-care system for long-term savings Funding biomedical, science, and engineering research And extending broadband services to underserved communities across the country. Step 5: Improve education Improve education to make America more competitive. To increase higher-education opportunities, college students will be eligible for a $2,500 tuition tax credit, $200 million will expand work-study programs, and the maximum Pell Grant – federal aid primarily for low-income students – will increase by $500. The package also provides more than $2 billion for early childhood development, and $13 billion in grants to ensure disadvantaged kids achieve high academic standards. Step 6: Unemployment benefits Help the unemployed, who are bearing the brunt of the economic crisis. Anyone who lost their job won’t have to pay income taxes on the first $2,400 of federal unemployment benefits, and government subsidies will make their health insurance more affordable. The package increases and extends unemployment benefits through 2009 and boosts food stamp benefits to offset rising food costs. Step 7: Tax relief Cut taxes and boost consumer confidence. The stimulus package includes $288 billion in tax cuts. In 2009 and 2010, President Obama’s signature 'Making Work Pay' tax cut will provide most individuals with $400 and most families with $800. Qualified retirees and disabled veterans will get a one-time $250 payment. These cuts ensure that working people pay less taxes, so they have more money to spend. Tip To help pump money into the economy over time, the 'Making Work Pay' tax credits won’t be distributed as a lump sum. Beginning in June, you’ll see an extra $13 in your weekly paycheck, and an extra $8 starting in January 2010. Step 8: Housing and auto credits Boost the housing and auto markets. To help buoy the housing market and stem foreclosures, the tax credit for first-time homebuyers will increase to $8,000. And if you purchase a new car, you can deduct the sales tax. These tax savings will translate into more people buying cars, which will help shore up the auto industry in addition to encouraging consumer spending. Step 9: Send money to states Help all 50 states. The economy can’t bounce back if states can’t balance their budgets, and if states suffer budget shortfalls, they can’t pay for essentials like public safety and other critical services, quality teachers, and school renovations. The package provides more than $50 billion for state services, plus an $87 billion increase in federal funding for Medicaid to states. Step 10: Work together Encourage optimism. We can’t expect the government to solve the financial crisis alone, or overnight. The private sector must contribute to job creation and economic growth. But the stimulus package is the first, critical step to getting our economy back on track. As President Obama said, 'We will turn this crisis into opportunity and emerge from our painful present into a brighter future.' Did You Know? You can find out more details of the stimulus plan, and even track how government money is being spent once the plan kicks

It's almost like the internet killed our passion to create physical things and advance our state of being. Our climate is changing, like it or not. But we can change that if we get our head on straight. We only have one planet, and for hundreds of years, we’ve been exploiting its resources for the profit of few. The plan is simple as I said… Part 1 - There is a massive fusion reactor in the sky beaming down more energy than we could possibly need to power our homes, our cars, and even our smart little devices. Part 2 - We capture that energy and store it locally. So when the sun goes away, and we can’t use it’s energy directly, we have enough to get us through to the next day. This is true freedom. This is real independence. Now you may think this is science fiction, but it’s not. You may believe that this is a far-off reality in the future, but it’s not. You can take control of your energy independence today. So for those of you that can, I say you should. For if we don’t decide to be the change, we want to see in the world, who is going to decide what this world will look like in the future? // Join Our Community on Patreon!

Tesla, Inc. (formerly named Tesla Motors) is an American automaker, energy storage company, and solar panel manufacturer based in Palo Alto, California.[6] The company was initially founded in 2003 by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning, although the company also considers Elon Musk, JB Straubel, and Ian Wright amongst its co-founders.[7] The company specializes in electric cars, Lithium-ion battery energy storage, and, through their SolarCity subsidiary, residential solar panels.[8][9][10][11] Tesla first gained widespread attention following its production of the Tesla Roadster, the first electric sports car, in 2008.[12] The company's second vehicle, the Model S, an electric luxury sedan, debuted in 2012 and is built at the Tesla Factory in California. In Q1 2013, Tesla released its stock profits for the first time from its NASDAQ ticker symbol.[13][14] The Model S has been the world's best-selling plug-in electric car for two years in a row, 2015 and 2016.[15][16] Its global sales achieved the 150,000 unit milestone in November 2016, four years and five months after its introduction.[17] As of December 2016, the Model S ranks as the world's all-time second best-selling plug-in after the Nissan Leaf.[18] The Model S was then followed by the Model X, a crossover SUV. Tesla's next vehicle is the Model 3,[19] which was unveiled in March 2016. It is slated for release in 2017 with a price at US$35,000, before any government incentives.[20][21] As of December 2016, Tesla has sold over 186,000 electric cars worldwide since delivery of its first Tesla Roadster in 2008, making the carmaker the second largest global pure electric car manufacturer after the Renault-Nissan Alliance.[22][23] For two years running, 2015 and 2016, Tesla ranked as the world's second best selling manufacturer of plug-in electric cars after BYD Auto.[15][24][25] Musk, the CEO, has said that he envisions Tesla as a technology company and independent automaker,[26] aimed at eventually offering electric cars at prices affordable to the average consumer.[27][28]

This award-winning program challenges 20 collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, contains unique advanced technologies, and attractive. This program features the top two winning teams from the University of Maryland and Purdue University of the United States with the third placed team from the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. These teams were selected based upon the best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal alternative power production and maximum energy efficiency The first Solar Decathlon was held in 2002. The competition has since occurred biennially in 2005, 2007, and 2009. The 2011 event took place at the National Mall's West Potomac Park in Washington, D.C., September 23rd through October 2nd, 2011. Open to the public free of charge over one million visitors toured the houses, gathered ideas to use in their own homes, and learn how energy-saving features can help reduce operating costs, while reducing the need for energy production and the releases of CO2 greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Solar Decathlons are demanding, rigorous competitions that serve as a unique training ground for participating university faculty members and both undergraduate and graduate students. Preparation for the Solar Decathlon requires two years of designing , analysis, and strategic planning. To foster a competitive spirit, teams are judged in ten contests, each worth 100 points. The team that earns the most combined points—balancing cost-effectiveness, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency—wins the competition. www.emerald-planet.orttp://tinyurl.com/6qphtxr (Facebook) http://twitter.com/#!/emeraldplanet1 (Twitter) http://tinyurl.com/7a2ru7f (Linkedin)

JOIN PragerFORCE! For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: Crony capitalism. What is it? Why is it so bad? To answer these questions, let’s think about good, old-fashioned capitalism. It is premised on the free exchange of goods or services between independent agents. Let’s say I want to buy some cereal. Steve’s Grocery is selling my brand for $4. Ted’s Grocery has it for $5. I buy from Steve, which creates the most value for both me and him. Meanwhile, Ted now has an incentive to cut his costs so he can compete better. Replicate this kind of transaction billions of times a day, 365 days a year, and that is how our economy functions and grows. Or at least how it’s supposed to. Now, what about crony capitalism? Let’s say it’s the government that wants to buy some cereal. More specifically, the House of Representatives’ Committee for Cereal Acquisition is put in charge of the task. Steve still sells it for $4. Ted for $5. I buy from Steve. He’s the low price man. But the Committee for Cereal Acquisition buys from Ted. Why? Because Ted lobbied the committee. Because his corporate headquarters is in the chairman’s district. Because he gave more campaign contributions. Because he promised a lobbying gig to an undecided committee member who plans to retire next year. That is how crony capitalism works. And it happens all throughout the government—from defense contracting, to farm subsidies, clean energy programs, infrastructure spending, affordable housing, food stamps, Medicare, Obamacare, tax policy. You pretty much name it. Crony capitalism is there. Capitalism is moral because it is premised on a voluntary exchange between independent parties – who agree to the deal only because it creates value for everybody. Crony capitalism is immoral because one of the parties—the government—has been bought off. This creates three problems. First, it is unfair. Politicians are spending the public’s money, but not for the public interest. Instead, they reward friends, supporters, or themselves. Our Constitution grants Congress the power to provide for the general welfare. Crony capitalism violates this sacred principle. Second, it is incredibly wasteful. In our cereal example, the government overpaid by going with Ted instead of Steve. That’s obviously a waste of taxpayer money. In fact, it is really stealing from the taxpayer. Here’s more waste. Ted had to spend money to lobby the government to get the contract. So, he didn’t get all of that dollar out of the transaction. That’s money that could have been spent making a better product or used in some other constructive way. Economists call this deadweight loss. And it can be substantial. Moreover, crony capitalism distorts the broader economy. In some industries—like healthcare, student loans, home mortgages, and aerospace—the government is one of the biggest purchasers of goods or services. So its politicized decisions can have wide-ranging and detrimental effects. An entire industry can become, in effect, a client of the government. When that happens its goal is not to build a better mousetrap, but to keep politicians happy. How much does crony capitalism cost society per year? It is hard to say precisely, but the number reaches into the tens of billions of dollars, maybe beyond. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/what-crony-capitalism

Ribbon Cutting: 9th East Lofts at Bennion Plaza
 
43:22
On Tuesday, March 14th, Mayor Jackie Biskupski and housing agency representatives gathered for a ribbon cutting at the 9th East Lofts at Bennion Plaza, a six-story apartment building that will add 68 units to the City’s stock of affordable housing. The Mayor was joined by representatives of the Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City (RDA) the Housing Authority of Salt Lake City (HASLC), City Council Member and RDA Board Member Stan Penfold, as well as HUD Field Office Director Kelley Jorgensen, State Housing and Community Development Director Jonathan Hardy, and HASLC Chair Palmer DePaulis. Of the 68 units in the building, 54 will be rented at no more than 60 percent of the area median income, and 22 will accommodate residents with special needs. The structure includes a commercial space on the ground level, which faces the pedestrian-friendly Bennion Plaza. The RDA purchased the property, managed the environmental remediation process, oversaw the relocation of the Jordan-Salt Lake Canal out from under the building site, and selected HASLC through a competitive process to develop the project. The City’s Housing and Neighborhood Development division (HAND), played a major role, as well. Designed by Method Studio and built by Zwick Construction, the 9th East Lofts adhere to Energy Star mid-rise and LEED Silver standards. Elements from the site’s former structure—the Kiwanis-Felt Recreation Center—have been integrated into the current building, such as the gymnasium’s wood flooring. Collective financial partners include the RDA, Utah Housing Corporation, HAND, Olene Walker Housing Loan Fund, JP Morgan Chase, and Utah Community Reinvestment Corp. The Redevelopment Agency of Salt Lake City works with communities to implement Salt Lake City’s master plans to create vital housing opportunities, improve infrastructure, and participate in the economic development of the City. For more information on RDA projects and programs, go to www.slcrda.com. For more information on affordable housing in Salt Lake City, visit www.slcgov.com/hand. The Housing Authority of Salt Lake City is an independent agency housing over 9,000 previously struggling seniors, children, families, and persons with high needs through stable housing throughout the Salt Lake Valley. The properties owned or funded by HASLC, many of them homes or duplexes, are well-kept, inspected regularly, and of high quality. HASLC has been formally designated a “high performer” for several years running by its primary funding provider, HUD. For more information on HASLC, go to www.haslcutah.org.

He is serving his second term in the U.S. Senate after winning re-election in 2012 with 71 percent of the vote. Sanders previously served as mayor of Vermont’s largest city for eight years before defeating an incumbent Republican to be the sole congressperson for the state in the U.S. House of Representatives. He lives in Burlington, Vermont with his wife Jane and has four children and seven grandchildren. Bernard “Bernie” Sanders was born in Brooklyn, New York, to immigrant parents and grew up in a small, rent-controlled apartment. His father came to the United States from Poland at the age of 17 without much money or a formal education. While attending the University of Chicago, a 20-year-old Sanders led students in a multi-week sit-in to oppose segregation in off-campus housing owned by the university as a Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) officer. In August of 1963, Sanders took an overnight bus as an organizer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee to hear Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech firsthand at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. After graduation, Bernie moved to Vermont where he worked as a carpenter and documentary filmmaker. In 1981, he was elected as mayor of Burlington as an Independent by a mere 10 votes, shocking the city’s political establishment by defeating a six-term, local machine mayor. In 1983, Bernie was re-elected by a 21 point margin with a record amount of voter turnout. Under his administration, the city made major strides in affordable housing, progressive taxation, environmental protection, child care, women’s rights, youth programs and the arts. In 1990, Sanders was elected to the House of Representatives as the first Independent in 40 years and joined the Democratic caucus. He was re-elected for eight terms, during which he voted against the deregulation of Wall Street, the Patriot Act, and the invasion of Iraq. In 2006, Sanders defeated the richest man in Vermont to win a seat in the U.S. Senate as an Independent. Known as a “practical and successful legislator,” Sanders served as chairman of the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs where he authored and passed the most significant veteran health care reform bill in recent history. While in the Senate, Sanders has fought tirelessly for working class Americans against the influence of big money in politics. In 2010, he gave an eight-and-a-half hour filibuster-like speech on the Senate floor in opposition to extending Bush-era tax breaks for the wealthy. In 2015, the Democratic leadership tapped Bernie to serve as the caucus’ ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee. Known for his consistency on the issues, Senator Sanders has supported the working class, women, communities of color, and the LGBT community throughout his career. He is an advocate for the environment, unions, and immigrants. He voted against Keystone XL, opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, wants to expand the Voting Rights Act, and pass the Equal Rights Amendment.

Election 2010 - Make housing a priority.wmv
 
01:45
In the run up to the UK general election 2010, Community Housing Cymru along with the National Housing Federation in England, The Scottish Housing Federation and the Northern Ireland Housing Federation, will be lobbying prospective parliamentary candidates on three key housing issues. Although much of housing is devolved, the four UK housing federations believe that these three areas are UK wide and that they must be key issues in the forth coming general election. The issues are: •New supply to avoid a further housing crisis •Climate change •Financial inclusion To illustrate how housing associations could benefit from these issues being addressed, Community Housing Cymru have met with one of their members based in South Wales, who are in the process of building over 100 new affordable homes on land acquired from Newport council. The homes will be built to sustainable code level 5 and as a result tenants can expect to pay as little as £5 a week on their energy bills. Darrell Bolton, corporate director at Fairlake explains

With funding through the Commonwealth Government's Nation Building and Jobs Plan, Housing ACT, in consultation with older public tenants, designed and built a number of seniors public housing developments that enabled older tenants to downsize from larger public housing properties. They have been designed to be easy to live in and maintain, and because they are energy efficient they save tenants money on heating and cooling.
