Happy Earth Day, 2008


It’s been a crazy travel schedule and I’m just now getting a chance to do some blogging (and not for long). NAB in Vegas was awesome – I had no idea how much cool stuff the media guys get to play with. Virtual Earth has been added to a lot of the editing software, so I’m expecting to see some cool broadcast, shows, movies, etc. using Virtual Earth.

So, it’s Earth Day and I figured I’d post something that combines it with Virtual Earth. Enter Sungevity.

The site allows you to pin point your house (in California right now) and request information about solar power. I tried my former town home in San Diego (Mission Valley). I’m waiting for the email now about information, but it’s apparently not automated so I guess I’ll have to post back more information later. Now, how’s that for a unique use of Virtual Earth on Earth Day?

You can read more about it on businessGreen.com.

Also, check out The Carbon Grove (sponsored by IE). You can also Go Green using our Walking Directions.

    Well, here’s the response I got back. Although this property is in California and the site says only available in California….

    "Dear Homeowner Thanks for your interest in going solar with Sungevity! You are currently outside our service area, but thought you would  like to see how your home would look with solar – so I’ve taken the  liberty of sizing your roof.  You have good roof potential for our  smallest system, system A – that could generate a fantastic financial  return of about 15%, and significant environmental benefits. We will be in touch later in the year when we are in your area with a  high quality installation service – but in the meantime, please don’t  hesitate to call if I can help with any questions about going solar. Shine on!
