Dear Readers,

If you are in favor of renewable,  clean, or solar energy, please sign this petition for FIT/CLEAN Program, accessible at http://sunisthefuture.net/?page_id=1065 Thank you very much. We are at a critical juncture in human history when individual effort and participation in the transition into renewable energy age is desperately needed!  Your signature will be very meaningful in helping all earthlings!  For a summary of why we need to switch to power the earth with Wind-Water-Sunlight quickly, reasons are explained by Stanford Professor Mark Z. Jacobson at  http://sunisthefuture.net/?m=20110731 There are more than sixteen episodes of discussions on FIT (Feed-In-Tariff/CLEAN Program) available at http://sunisthefuture.net Please feel free to read/listen to them (type in feed-in-tariff in the search box at right).  Keep in mind that signing this petition only means that you are in favor of renewable energy and FIT/CLEAN Program and does not obligate you to provide any financial support. We simply want our combined voice to be heard even if we are not spending millions of lobbying dollars. We want to demonstrate that our system of democracy will work for people in all socio-economic strata. So please join us in this earthly movement by signing this petition and participating in our common goal of moving toward the renewable and solar energy age.

Now, back to Solar Decathlon of 2011: Wow! Can’t believe it!  This is the last of the twenty collegiate designs being shown at Solar Decathlon of 2011.  You know what they say about last but not the least…and so is Team Belgium by Ghent University’s E-Cube design.  As its name suggests, the appearance of E-Cube design looks like something out of a science fiction movie, with its two-story, cube-like shape, clean and compactly boxy exterior, complimented by a spacious interior for a family of four with two bedrooms, one bathroom, a kitchen, and living areas.  E-Cube is an affordable, do-it-yourself building kit for a solar-powered house that is pre-engineered, factory-built, and easily assembled without special skills.  The design begins with a starter unit that may be upgraded with enhancements to the PV system and interior finishes as well as extensions to the living space, allowing homeowners to personalize the house according to time and budget available.  This house is also structurally flexible with wall panels that are adaptable and an expandable pallet racking system. So, the E-Cube can be reconfigured and expanded.  The passive design and solar panels on the roof will eliminate heating and cooling costs upon completion of the house. Please take a look at this affordable zero-energy home designed and built by students of Ghent University—>
