Is going green costing too much green?
As I was browsing the environment section on NYTimes.com, I came across a story about taking solar and going large scale. The story is about the transition to solar power. Changes can happen on a small scale, like an entire neighborhood or city solar panel addition or a large scale by building an addition that could power many cities. This would be a great investment, however, it is one that will take at least 14 years to pay off.
After reading this article, I started thinking, what is the long term cost of “green” investments? The article argues that we have been here for 200 hundred years, a 14 year payoff is not that long in comparison. I have to agree.
We have had a hand in much, if not most of the damage that has happened to our planet. If we have to dedicate some time and money to make some changes for the better, then that is what we need to do.
Companies are trying to cut the cost of “going green” so that it will be more accessible and less intimidating. As long as companies and advocates continue to make green options available and affordable, I think we will start to see successes in reversing and preventing some of the damage we have done in the past 200 hundred years.
