Uncle Sam Wants YOU to Use Clean Energy

December 2009
Greentips;2009, p1
The article presents the solar energy equipment to improve the energy efficiency at home. One is the geothermal heat pumps, a highly efficient systems use the ground's thermal energy to heat and cool one's home. Another is solar panels an solar photovoltaic systems which offers electricity to the home and meet applicable fire and electrical codes. Another is fuel cells which generates electricity from the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen.
