Local Green News: Support 25x 25
The proposal to increase Michigan’s renewable energy standard to 25 percent by 2025 received a unanimous green light a few days ago to be placed on the Nov. 6 ballot. The news comes on the heels of a study that says “25 by 25″ will create around 74,000 jobs across the state. Ecotelligent Homes supports this initiative and here is why you should too!
When voters approve the 25×25 proposal, Michigan will join 30 other states that have already adopted similar measures. Our current standard is only 10% by 2015, that’s the worst renewable energy standard in the Big Ten!
Learn more at the FREE information discussion/webinar hosted by The Michigan Energy Forum and Ann Arbor Spark onSept 6th from 5:00 – 7:00PM Get Involved to help support the 25×25 proposal with The Ecology Center.

Green Tips – Summar Harvest
Fall is quickly approaching, time to clean up the summer’s garden and harvest those few remaining crops.
– The best time to harvest your garden is early morning, just after the dew has dried. Crops will be cooler and have a higher water content and crisper texture than they do during the warmer part of the day.
– Some vegetables actually improve after a frost. These include kale, cabbage, parsnips, carrots and Brussels sprouts, which get sweeter from the cold temperatures
– What to do with all the crops? Have you thought about canning?
– Don’t forget the lawn. September is the best month of the entire year to seed your lawn. This includes both seeding a new lawn and reseeding an established lawn to make it thicker and healthier.
