Wake-Up Call: Reducing Your Carbon Footprint

What’s your carbon footprint? Paul Risberg, President of Altenergy Inc., and Roger Canvendish, President of Spotsy Wind Energy, joined Rick Moore on WNRN’s Sunday Morning Wake-Up Call to discuss how the types of energy we use in our homes affect the environment. Does a personal alternative energy system such as a wind turbine or solar thermal system make sense for your home?

Some other topics include the practicality of Net Metering (selling back energy to the grid), using an “energy audit” to find out what parts of your home are wasting the most energy, and how you can get a tax credit for using alternative energy sources.

The Wake-Up Call is broadcast every Sunday at 11 a.m. on WNRN.
