Darlene, that was an interesting article. I especially liked the comparison of gas vs. electric utility bills, and the discussion of comparative installation costs for tankless heaters. My water heater is getting up there and I've been thinking about replacing it before I have a problem. An electric tankless was one of my considerations (because I can't get natural gas, $%##*&). I think I'll stick to a high efficiency standard model--plus, I can install it myself. I hate paying other people to do my work! smile

Saving a bundle on installation up front is always a good thing. I am not sure just what installation costs run these days but I am thinking it will be quite a bit more than my last replacement bill some 15 years ago...only $75. Plus, you will be installing a very efficient water heater, so you will have savings on that end also. Guess you have a start to your 2012 Things to Do List.

There are so many great ways to use sustainable energy. One example is using sustainable energy in gyms. The machines in the gym can actually power the gym. Such as bikes in spin classes, etc. It is very interesting and there are gyms doing it out there. Also, there is a village that uses just water power to power their homes. Obviously things like this can be done and people just need to find the will to do it.

Now that is a great idea I have not heard...and a great post for this forum. Wonder how the gym would "thank" the patrons for providing them with lower energy costs...maybe have a free health drink once a month or other perks. Some people may just love being a part of such a great project.

No mention that solar power is doubling in price performance every two years? I'd say within a decade, that will be one of the most common forms of home-produced energy.

I hope you're right, Ryan, but I'm not holding my breath for solar. Affordable solar power is always "right around the corner" but never seems to materialize. And based on the latest US government scandals involving Solyndra and others, well, I hope my grandkids can someday use solar for their homes, at least.

Going to be more and more important as natural resources become scarce and the population increases to find alternative means of living.

@75Corvette--

Unfortunately, the vast majority of solar products are manufactured overseas, and importation taxes on them are astronomical. I had family members who wanted to become resellers of solar equipment, but found that the products would be taxed 500% more than their intrinsic value.

I'd be happy to refer you to the company they recommended, however!
