37 Ive heard it said that when you do things the way you always have, youll get what youve always gotten. Today weve got global warming, air pollution, and all sorts of human health problems that are tied to the way we generate electricity… how can we possibly afford to build all these new power plants? Theres got to be a better way. Jeff Barrie, Creator of Kilowatt Ours
