One of my favorite shows on public television is The Hippy Gourmet. The show features healthy cooking, renewable living, and in the Organic Living episode below, the Sun Run solar company in Southern California.
In this video, the President and COO of Sun Run, explains the reasoning behind his company and shows how easy it is to install a solar energy system on your own home. A homeowner also discusses how her neighborhood did a group purchase to reduce overall costs for themselves.
If you ever wanted to see what a solar power system looks like and get a primer on how they work, just watch this short clip.
In another episode of the Hippy Gourmet, we get a tour in a solar-powered chariot, pulled by George W. Bush. While arguably a lot more fun than reviewing solar panels, the chariot is a bit less practical. I can’t really see it saving me money like installing a solar energy system on my roof. Still, I have some great ideas for next Halloween….
