Energy Independent Farms and Sustainable Communities

The thought of National and State debts going up scares me, from our future point of view. What are we giving to the next generation? Our dependence on oil and military interventions to protect oil are costly and too much money is leaving the country giving us trade deficits.

Let us focus on Green Solutions and stop spending borrowed money.
How do produce value at home and keep the money in our local economy? The answer is to think of sustainable green strategies and help develop local businesses. Invest in conservation, finance long term green power generation systems.

New York States is fortunate to have a very large agricultural business base. Many rural Counties have large number of dairy farms, Fruits and vegetable farms which supports the local economy. Most farms have large land areas and potential for wind energy, solar energy and biomass energy. These farms can become an economic engine for the local community if the Community Leaders decide to invest in long term strategy of renewable energy development at these farms. Local green jobs and availability of local grown food with improved environment are key benefits.

As the Nations invests in Green infrastructure we should focus on helping these farms become economically stable, energy independent and provider of green power and bio fuels. There is GOLD waiting to be extracted in this Green Sector.
