  1. Energy Savings Fund for Low Income Housing, South Africa

    This project installs solar water heaters, compact fluorescent lighting, solar cookers, better fuels and electricity generation for several low income household communities in South Africa including Welbedacht (KwaZulu-Natal) , Kuyasa (Khayelitsha), and Cato Manor (Umuthi Mayche). These alternative energy supplies are more cost-effective, reduce grid-electricity consumption in the face of an unreliable, dirty energy supply, and decrease emission of greenhouse gases, while also improving the quality of life for residents.

  2. Costa Rican Rainforests

    Through a nonprofit called FUNDECOR, nearly 100 square miles in the central volcanic mountain range of Costa Rica are being set aside for forest preservation. The project is part of a country-wide program stopping the destruction of the Costa Rican rain forest which has thus far recaptured 26 percent of the country's land-mass-to-forest cover, sequestering millions of tons of carbon. Most of these humid tropical rainforests are old-growth, or mature second-growth, and noted for their extreme diversity of species. Besides fighting global warming, the forests preserve priceless biodiversity, protect local aquifers and watersheds, and mitigate erosion.

  3. Wind Energy in North Dakota

    In central North Dakota, near the Missouri River, the Wilton windmills stand nearly 300 ft tall and generate enough clean energy to power 30,000 homes. Basin Electric Power Cooperative, a consumer-owned, non-profit energy cooperative headquartered in Bismarck, purchases all the electricity produced at the Wilton Wind Energy Center. Made up of 126 customer-owned rural electricity providers, Basin is also working on possible carbon sequestration and using its wind power to create hydrogen fuel for its vehicles. North Dakota now gets most of its electricity from coal, but with the help of renewable energy credits, wind power is becoming an economically viable clean energy alternative.
