Indiana becomes the fastest growing state in Wind Energy!

Welcome to the first ever Indiana Wind Energy Week! In the last eighteen months, we have begun to embrace our full wind potential. In 2007 we did not produce any electricity from wind resources. In 2008 the Horizon Benton County Wind Farm, Indiana’s first commercial-scale wind farm, produced more than 130 megawatts (MW's) of home-grown renewable electricity. And we are projected to produce 836 MWs of wind-generated power, from four separate Hoosier Wind Farms, in 2009!! This astonishing growth… Continue

Tom Wood Subaru will be breaking ground on its new dealership on 96th St. This building will be a LEED facilty. It will be enviromentally sound and will have many benefits. I have listed a few below.

Rainwater catchers on the roof to re-use water for washing cars

Solar panels to provide electric to parts of the facilty

Complete virtual showroom off LCD monitors(no Paper brochures)

This LEED facilty will be the only car dealership in Indiana with this certification. We will also have a camera monitoring the construction that will link into a live video feed anyone can watch.

I will follow up with more details as they come avalible. This is an exciting time at Tom Wood Subaru.

Give me call with any questions

Thanks.... Adding music content would be great. Let's play with the idea and see where it leads.
I know I have intentions of playing around with the idea of blogging radio content, interviews, news and sustainability focused break downs of the programs. Possibly even look at placing pod casts for download on how to hot topic stuff.
I think a major piece to what we need here in Indiana is a consistent medium to reach more and more people driving awareness and growth of the everyday public to what it means to live green and why more can do so in very easy ways. Decreasing Indiana's Carbon Footprint is a big goal.
My hope is that the radio station can become an additional rally point, or a focal point if you will, of synergistic flow to build up, support and grow what has been happening in the (almost) underground of Indiana. Example of what you have created here is awesome. With conscious support, brain storming, collaboration I believe we can achieve more over the next 5 years than the last 15.

Finding support for public radio projects can be tough in the beginning yet with the right introductions, the proper networking we can easily make this a viable media outlet to serve the greater good. Big misconceptions is that most business minded folks attach the same thought line to public radio as they do commercial radio and don't understand how affordable it is. We build on the concept of many verse big budget players, it brings about extremely good advantages business wise, tax wise, and public exposure wise. Also with a few months under our belt there are grants we can possibly attach that will sustain the radio station for awhile as well as purchase some things that are very needed like a slightly used digital transmitter etc.

OOOOPS! I've been ranting again. LOL
Thanks again for all you do, the forum and focus you maintain that has created strong building blocks to a Greener Indiana!

Thanks! I've worked very hard to create a useful Web site that shows people how to make art by reusing materials. This is especially important for those with little money, mostly teachers, but the process saves energy, natural resources, and landfill space, too.

Right now I'm working on organizing a recycled art show. With nearly two dozen participating artists, I think we have the beginnings of a group devoted to "upcycling or repurposing" materials, so I'll pass along info about this site. I'm glad to be a part of it.

I'm embarrassed that it's taken me this long. I've viewed the site often, but finally realized that I wasn't participating. I'm glad to be on board now. Now...let's see if I can think of something intelligent to say... ;)

Charged up over recycling batteries

Renee,

I use the Lawrence Library and used to drop old batteries there for recycling. They no longer collect them. Where can they be recycled now?

Heydon

After being told for years not to discard batteries in the trash, I find it very difficult to do so with my [...]

Be kind, rewind

Are the VHS and Beta videos recyclable with other plastics? In other words, can I put them in my recyclables box for Ray’s?

Daiva

Daiva, darling, I hope you don’t mind that I use Terms of Endearment when I tell you that no, you should not put your VHS tapes [...]
