1. the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint.
2. exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.
3. the power to determine action without restraint.
Freedom is something we often take for granted. One of the greatest benefits of living in America is the amount of freedom we have, something people in a lot of other countries do not have. In Hawaii, though, there is one type of freedom that most people aren’t aware of. The freedom to choose the way they power their homes.
For decades, the only way we could affordably bring electricity into our homes was through the electric company. All other ways were not only more expensive but usually inconvenient as well. Well, finally there is a way to power our homes that is not only easy, but due to incredible tax breaks, even more affordable than purchasing through the utility companies. Solar energy.
Solar hot water can take care of all your hot water needs (one of the biggest energy hogs) and solar photovoltaic (pv) can fill your electrical needs. You can even purchase energy storage systems to supply you with electricity when your pv system isn’t producing enough.
Take control of your life and cut back your usage of dirty, fossil fuels. Solar is not only clean, but will actually save you money in the long run and put YOU in control of how your energy is generated. Which is another type of freedom. The freedom to determine how much you will be paying for your electricity every month.
