Energy Alternatives Open House – VB

20 11 2008

Virginia Beach is looking for input about the future of energy production in Virginia Beach. They will have a variety of speakers on alternative energies. I am not sure what say they think they have in off-shore drilling though. As for the alternatives, in my opinion, I think they should go for off-shore wind for a power source that can be sold to everyone. I also think that they should push for grid-tied home solar systems. These systems feed the grid extra energy, which helps meet demand elsewhere and the panel owner receives energy credits that can be used to pay for power at night (net-metering) The other sources that have been mentioned (waves, algae, etc) should be looked into but at the current moment I do not think that they should invest heavily in it.Wind Farm off the coast of Denmark
