Brief Note on Alternative Energy


A lot of people seem to think that solar and wind energy are expensive and complicated. I beg to differ.

The cost of a new electric clothes dryer seems to start at about $250 and go up from there depending on how big you want it to be, what brand you prefer, etc. And then actually running it probably means $250 or more per year in electricity and/or gas costs. And if you've ever installed one, you know what a pain it is to get it to your place, get it into the laundry area, hook up the exhaust, etc.

My homemade wind and solar clothes dryer cost about $3 to assemble (one dollar for clothes line, two for clothespins), came home in a grocery bag, took about five minutes to install, and has zero electrical operating costs.

Just sayin' ...
