What do you think of them? I know they look silly now but who knows what it's going to be like in the next 100 years?
1. Alternative Domestic Energy Sources
I'm assuming that everyone here has electricity in their homes. Well, why doesn't anyone make an effort to reduce their energy consumption? This would save tons of money in the long run. Let me explain...
Well, I think everyone should be able to save at least 10% of their overall household energy consumption by installing solar panels onto the roof of the house. These little panels convert radiant energy into electrical energy for he home. They are great for heating water and can also be used as a backup power plant. They cause no pollution and can function for many decades. They may look ugly, but if placed on top of the house, they will be almost invisible to everyone down below.
You can install windmills on the top of your home's roof and if enough are placed, you should also expect to save another 5% of total domestic electricity consumption.
In total, you should save almost a quater of your electricity bills and save lots of money in the long run.
2. Toyota Prius and Honda Insight
Japanese manufacturers have launced two amazing vehicles. The Toyota Prius and the Honda Insight. These vehicles combine traditional gasoline power with regenerative electric power that never needs recharging. Unlike conventional cars, these hybirds are known to have up to 60MPG, compared to a conventional 20MPG fo other cars. They also look good, are comfortable, fast, and even more powerful than many other gasoline-powered vehicles. A good Toyota Prius from 1997 to 2003 should cost you less than $10,000. Avoid the newer Toyota Prius's since they look very ugly. Plus, you would be doing your part in saving the world.
