A Step Toward Green

 
We have many possibilities for increasing our energy production here in our home state. There has been the so called push for green energy out of our current administration but to what level have we seen it? We have had a few wind farms set up, but not near enough, and even with the ones we do have, how much of this energy is staying here in Montana? I can speak on this subject in a more personal level being as I live off grid. There is not even a power line I could hook to without major cost on my part due to the distance from my home to the nearest line. This being said I can personally attest to the fact that contrary to what the nay sayers claim, It can be a very efficient form of power generation going solar/wind even if it is on a private per home scale. The cost for the most part can hit the break even point is a relatively short period. For those who may not be able to set up a system which in the beginning power their entire home it would be simple enough to set up for a smaller area to run this way and gradually  build up. There by eventually  weaning them self off the grid. In the worse case situation a reverse meter on ones home even for small production would save Montanans some of their hard earned money. In a state that pushes as hard as Montana does in protecting our environment I feel a much stronger push must be made to convert over to more renewable sources. If every home in the state had at least a couple hundred watts of production ability this would be a huge saving to our state as a whole. In addition to this I would like to see all State, county and city owned buildings fitted for renewables. This could also be done in phases to soften the blow of the cost involved. If we did nothing more than equip the smaller school buildings in the state in this manner we would make a nice impact towards a cleaner environment and reducing the cost of running these smaller schools making it more feasible to leave them open. Our farms and ranches across the state have many acres of land which realistically can't be used for much. These areas would be ideal for our agricultural producers to diversify. The eastern 2/3's of the state are prime areas for such expansion. We must in this push keep in mind that we need to do it as a Montana project and not allow outside interest to take over our state where this is concerned. Small area renewable electric co-ops would be another way to gain the best return for our investment. Montana produced for Montana, keeps our state cleaner and keeps our money here in the state where it belongs, helping us even more.

It is constantly essential to evaluate your budgetary condition before the credit buy. You should know about the amount you can without much of a stretch bear. In the event that you as of now have a credit to be reimbursed, you have to remember that too.
