Power Up with Green Energy

Power Up with Green Energy

p>Green energy can mean a couple different things. Clean and efficient energy options fall under the definition of green energy, as well as sustainable options and combined heat and power. The advantages of going green are many – it allows you to stabilize or maybe even lower your energy expenses and the environmental toll is minimal to non-existent.

Green energy reduces the amount of power needed to create more energy units, so overall less energy is used. Using less energy reduces or eliminates greenhouse gas emissions which improve air quality and public health. Simple things like switching to energy efficient light bulbs can allow you to better use resources and save money, while bigger changes like using solar, wind or biomass power can have a greater impact not only on your bottom line but also on the environment.

Litter Causes Street Shutdown

Litter Causes Street Shutdown

A stray plastic bag recently caused a street in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn to be shut down. No one knows for sure where the bag came from, but the discarded bag was stuck in a tree and a resident of a building near the tree alerted police to a ‘suspicious’ looking plastic bag. Emergency crews blocked off the street to vehicle and pedestrian traffic and had residents and employees from local businesses remain indoors while they investigated for about an hour until the situation was deemed safe and the street was re-opened. In the end it was determined that the plastic bag contained a battery with wires attached to it – this most certainly added to the suspiciousness of the ordeal.
