An investment alternative to low returns or high risk: With bank savings accounts yielding almost non-existent returns, and "normal" levels of return only available from higher-risk ventures that many find unnerving, a third quite different investment path is worth considering: investing in energy-conservation and energy-generation infrastructure in your own home.

This approach can deliver easily quantifiable expense reduction over a very long term, can help insulate one from sudden fuel price fluctuations (like the recent 40% rise in local electric rates), and can contribute to a truly low-cost retirement, all while providing the same benefits as direct investment in local businesses. By paying local firms to do the site and system analyses, installations and modifications involved, it keeps our money circulating close to home, growing the resiliency and vitality of our shared “here”.
