Solar Powered or Alternative Energy Toys: Grasshopper Solar Powered Bug is amazing toys. Your kids can fellow the installation guide to build their first solar power toys without any experience. There are also wind power and hydropower toys. Your children can explore the power of the nature.
Switch to water heating systems that use solar power to heat hot tubs, pools and indoor water. Using electricity or gas to heat water is not terribly efficient, but water heaters that use solar power maintain water temperatures using only the sun’s rays by way of solar panels.

Though a newer idea, projects are being put together where heavy carbon producing plants are having their CO2 piped into these salt caverns for storage instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. Governments are rewarding these companies with carbon credits.
