April 16: Energy : Consumption, production, and reduction at the residential level. What can we do? What should we do?
The 45th anniversary of Earth Day is April 22. Will it matter? Can we help it matter?
Mark & Elizabeth England's home at 1194 South 500 East in Salt Lake City.
Late-comers, please use the back door.
This discussion will begin with an overview of Jared's home project and a look at the results and costs after 4 years of operation. The goal is to equip the audience with what is possible and what is not, at the residential level on a reasonable budget. The discussion will then broaden to the net impact of this project and the future of energy in our lives.
- How do you feel about the what energy costs today? Too little, just right, too much?
- What will the future look like in terms of how you get energy and/or produce it?
- What should be done, if anything, about energy consumption and production at the citizen or residential level?
- What role should regulations play, if any, in the production and consumption of energy?
