But when I met Max Aram, co-founder of Pick My Solar (PMS), I started to perk up. The company (with the somewhat problematic acronym) is perfect for people like me. They don’t sell solar panels; instead, they are advocates out in the solar world on my behalf, helping me to make the choice that works best for me. There is a lot of hand-holding. And coaching. And going to bat for me. And in the end, I get to choose what works best for my particular and unique situation among the selections they’ve whittled down. Finally, I can relax!
Okay, I guess we’re still talking about solar panels, cuz apparently that’s what’s on your radar right now. So cool–let’s keep talking.
I bet it’s because we want to do something in the face of climate change. But what? I suspect that people want to be proactive; not passive bystanders. But how?
I think I hit a nerve with this go green conversation. Several people wrote after the last post. Some said, “Egads, I’m going in circles too, I just want someone to tell me what to do.” Others said, “Hey, I’ve got some swell ideas. Check out these links.”
So I figured, why not mash people up and get everyone talking to each other. Because, as we all know, it takes a (blogger) village.
My blog follower (let’s call him George) gave me two new good ideas; switch my home to 100% renewables and turn in my Prius for an electric car.
I decided to start with renewable energy, do a little research, make some decisions, and voila, I’d be green. It couldn’t be that complicated, right?
Last week I received this email from a blog follower. It gave me pause.
I’ve emailed you about this before, but apparently, I’ve not made my point well enough since you continue sending out the same tired list of things that people can do…”
