Reduction of Energy Consumption Among Corporations
The following are suitable ways to lower energy consumption
Encouraging reuse and recycling of waste materials.
Installing solar systems to provide alternative source of energy.
Having in place efficient manufacturing systems and machines that demand lesser energy than outdated models.
Harnessing of wind energy.
Change from the traditional bulbs to the light emitting diode (LED) bulbs that consume far much less.
The corporations need to instill in their employees the value of unplugging or switching off all appliances that are not being used especially when closing office for the night or for long holidays.
All energy consuming appliances need to be serviced regularly to make them more efficient, for instance the aid conditioners in the offices.
Corporations need to make their buildings as insulated as possible to help cut down on the heating costs (Pace University, 2000).
Having shade trees and painting of houses with white color helps cut down the energy used for cooling the buildings.
10. Corporations need to encourage car pooling among their staff members, particularly those who depend on company transport to get home (Natural Resources...
The solar source will also provide uninterrupted power to the establishment during the sunny seasons or in regions where the sun is in abundance unlike the geothermal or fossil sources whose supply may go down often or fluctuate in supply. This means that the solar systems are not only beneficial to the natural environment but also profitable to the business of the corporations. However, the initial cost of installing the solar system is prohibitive hence many corporations avoid it or only install such system in part of their establishments across the region or the globe. The solar system may also fail to supply uninterrupted power for intended use during the long winter seasons where there is no sun for months.
The recycling of waste material that a company produces will require much lesser energy than when processing the initial raw material. This will also lead to lesser waste material ending up in water bodies and the environment, chocking the ecosystem. However, one challenge is that getting back the recyclable materials that the corporation might want to recycle could be difficult since limited quantities…

Lyndon Rive, Thank you for the opportunity to present to you and Solar City our proposal for bringing solar power to the government buildings of Trenton, New Jersey. In order to best appreciate the situation in which we find ourselves, we must undertake an explanation of why bringing solar power to the city is in everyone's best interest. This proposal, therefore, includes the reasons why solar panels are beneficial, how they

The primary benefit of the implementation of solar power remains the lowering of our carbon footprint in our pursuit for a pleasurable and feasible life within the modern world. According to research, "solar power panels generate zero CO2 emissions," (Simple Earth Media 2009). Thus, more focus on the implementation of solar power would drastically reduce the harmful gases being emitted into the atmosphere by traditional power sources. With no carbon
Obama energy policy in relation to the economy of the United State of America's 21st century economy. It begins with a general description of the policies and then proceeds and outlines the various elements of the policy. After the analysis the paper then presents the criticisms that are waged against the policy. A conclusions and recommendations are then presented at the end of the paper. These are geared towards
1349). In that last case, the lesson learned should be clear -- don't build wind turbines too close to residences, or don't build homes too close to a wind turbine. When it comes to nuisance suits based on aesthetic issues, Butler explains that "the courts have been extremely hesitant to label ugly, unattractive, or otherwise visually unappealing structures as nuisances" (p. 1350). The author argues in his Conclusion that a
