Driving in cold weather? Skip the "warm up." As Ecomodder.com points out, an idling engine gets "zero miles per gallon." (And it's environmentally uncool.) Also recheck your tire inflation as the season cools; air temperature affects tire inflation and you may need a "fill up."

Sunny LA plans to tap solar power from apartment rooftops

April 19th, 2011

OK, this is a hard one: What can cities in the Sunbelt do to find more energy sources?

Hint. It works best n the Sunbelt. Hmmmmm. That’s right, install solar panels!

In Los Angeles, homeowners have been installing solar panels for decades — when they can afford it. But the LA Business Council has concluded that solar power could benefit all Angelenos, and is hatching a pilot program to put apartment rooftops into solar service, especially in disadvantaged areas.

Putting solar panels on apartment rooftops could easily help add 300 megawatts of power to the city’s grid over the next five to ten years — enough to power 30,000 homes, according to a report issued by the Los Angeles Business Council’s Sustainability Summit.
