A wide variety of sustainable technology solutions are available for individuals and businesses alike. Both small, easy steps as well as larger investments of time and money can be taken toward a more environmentally friendly way of living. These solutions include alternative energy sources and energy conservation, sustainable transport, and sustainable building construction.
There are several ways to use renewable sources of energy and to reduce the amount of energy used. In a home, this may be as simple as replacing regular light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs. This requires only a small investment and can save significant amounts of money in the long run. With a larger investment, home and business owners can install solar panels to generate electricity in a renewable manner.
