Free energy at the Home Show!

My father had free tickets to the Home Show in Miami Beach. So, we decided that it would be a good way to spend the afternoon. Unlike past Home Shows, I made sure my credit card were left behind so it would not turn out to be a very expensive "free" show.
In all honesty, I was disappointed. It was not as good as the shows in the past. I did not see anything that made me go wow. However, I did see at least 5-6 stalls that offered Solar Energy choices to heat up water or for the entire home. Unfortunately, the vendors were not very excited to talk to me. So, I just picked up some brochures to review at home.
Now Daniel from ArteZanos Inc has something to say. And, he actually spoke with me for a few minutes. He specializes in sustainable roofing systems. Check out
I had just read an article regarding rooftop gardens a few days ago. Something that I had not really pondered before. And, here it was, right in front of me... Wild stuff! But, it could really make a difference on your electrical bill and it would forever change the look of the community. I wonder if my HOA would go for this? No more pressure cleaning the roof tiles! :-)
Next year, I'll bring my credit card.

Stay healthy,
