Are These Solar Powered Panels The Future Of Energy? Let’s Hope So…

Welcome to the potential future of solar energy! These innovative solar panels might someday eliminate the need for burning fossil fuels to generate electricity on a mass scale – hypothetically changing the way we power our future.

Solar Powered Panels The Future Of Energy

Solar Powered Panels The Future Of Energy

 

As modern technology continues to advance, futuristic solar panels like these might someday allow us to slowly wean ourselves off the energy sectors ugly little secret – fossil fuelsImagine, no more wasting our valuable tax dollars on the costly lighting of our nation’s highways. Not only will theses durable solar panels produce free electricity, they could eliminate many other potential hazards.

 

For those that live in the northern latitudes, these panels utilize their energy to power elements and keep the surface temperature just above 32°F. Thereby reducing road hazards, traffic delays, accidents and injuries. Oh yeah, and no more shoveling your driveways or sidewalks … or the damage caused by corrosive salt.

No more shoveling your driveways or sidewalks

No more shoveling your driveways or sidewalks

Since these panel have a series of LED lights on the visible side of the circuit board, the durable solar panels would have the ability to generate warning signs based on existing road conditions. Perfect for keeping our nation’s highways and byways lit at night, and potentially offering improved visibility for pilots landing on these futuristic solar powered landing strips.

These revolutionary solar panels utilize the mountains of recycled material generated by America’s gluttonous consumers generated annually. Complete with an underground network of cables for moving the sun’s converted power beneath the nations roadways — and then to individual homes — these panels could relegate the current necessity for power poles and telephone lines to nothing more than an unsightly blight of the industrial revolution.

For the first time in human history we have the technology to do what natures done since the beginning of life on this planet; harness the power of the Sun to fuel our growth and existence as a species.”

Are These Solar Powered Panels The Future Of Energy?  Let’s Hope So…

As solar power continues to expand throughout the Southwest, no doubt it will someday be illuminating many of Southern Utah’s environmentally friendly homes.

Take The Envision Utah Public Survey

Once again Washington County and the greater St. George has been ranked by the United States Census Bureau as one of the fastest-growing metropolitan statistical areas (MSA) in the U.S. – which has caused several forward thinking city planners to ponder the following growth topics; traffic, pollution, water (Lake Powell pipeline or not?) and our overall quality of life.

In an attempt to garner a little public participation and critical input on these important topics, Gov. Gary Herbert and Envision Utah have prepared an online survey, hoping that Washington County’s residence would login and voice their opinion.

Unfortunately, as of Monday only approximately 420 residents of Washington County have bothered to visit their website and participate in the future planning of Southern Utah.

The Envision Utah survey, where your participation is welcome until the end of May, can be found online at EnvisionUtah.org.

In planning for a drier future, the survey asks residents of southern Utah to select a path for their community’s water needs and their community’s projected growth. Allowing Washington County residents to speak up and voice their opinion regarding Southern Utah’s future water needs, which will ultimately impact 11 key quality-of-life issues:

Agriculture, Air Quality, Disaster Resilience, Education, Energy, Housing & Cost of Living, Jobs & Economy, Public Lands, Recreation, Transportation & Communities, and Water.

Utah Department of Transportation: 2015 Long-Range Regional Transportation Plans

St. George, Utah – it’s early Wednesday morning April 22, 2015, and the State of Utah has recently released their long-range transportation plan for UDOT’s facilities around the Beehive State.

In slightly more rural areas, Utah’s Department of Transportation formulates the States Long Range Transportation Plan (LRP). In Utah’s metropolitan areas (50,000 residents are more) the local MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organizations) arrange the Regional Transportation Plans (RTPs).

Utah Department of Transportation: 2015 Long-Range Regional Transportation Plan

Ready, waiting, and available for your input, the Draft LRP is now up for public comment through 4.30.15. Any concerns, remarks, or questions can be directed at the following State email address: planning@utah.gov. Those individuals seeking more information on UDOT’s proposed projects can view them on this interactive map.

Utah’s long-range transportation plan and regional transportation plans are a wish list of State improvement projects, necessitated by federal regulations, and revised every four years as a means of meeting the state’s fast-growing transportation needs.

Once the Utah Department of Transportation’s road projects are approved for funding by the State Transportation Commission, the projects are then placed into the STIP (Statewide Transportation Improvement Program), entering the design and construction phase.

Southern Utah Real Estate News: Would you Bid-to-Buy Real Estate Online?

St. George, Utah – it’s Friday morning April 17, 2015 and here’s your Southern Utah Real Estate News to end the week: Bravo proves there’s life after a career in the porn industry… at least for some (sorry Asia Carrera), HouseLogic.com notes that having property on a golf course can add up to $8,849 in value, and HomeSearch.com is betting that millennial home buyers would rather click their mouse to purchase their next property – rather than dealing with an old-school Realtor.

Those are your real estate headlines for this Friday morning… Let’s exercise a little due diligence and drill down on these stories!

From Porn to Penthouse

From Porn to Penthouse

 

From Porn to Penthouse.

The ‘Million Dollar Listing’s’ Fredrik Eklund from the Bravo channel is living proof that a past in the adult industry isn’t a death sentence for a prosperous post-porn career, and is anxious to share his secrets with the world. First tearing up the New York real estate market more than 10 years ago, Eklund sold $50 million worth of N.Y. property within his first 12 months by concentrating on high-end real estate transactions and was nominated for “Rookie of the Year” by the New York Board of Real Estate. And thanks to the Bravo network and a little notoriety, over the past 24 months, Eklund has been the # 1 real estate broker in NYC. Primarily thanks to his closing over $1.1 billion in real estate transactions.

 

Would you Bid-to-Buy Online Real Estate

Would you Bid-to-Buy Online Real Estate?

The ex-CEO of Groupon and Amazon.com is betting big that millennia’s will. Looking to capture their share of the $2 billion real estate sector, HomeSearch.com’s CEO Kal Raman told the GeekWire.com, “We are working hard to create the Amazon.com [for the real estate industry],” he said. “It’s the last white space for commerce transactions on the Web or on mobile.” By utilizing already existing online technologies, a homebuyer would be able to purchase a property with a single mouse click, and at the same time receive a 1 % refund on the final purchase price (for example, on a $500,000 home, you’d receive $5,000 back at closing). The way it works is simple; after a potential homebuyer has found the property of their dreams and has decided to purchase a specific property, they’re directed to begin the new aged real estate transaction through Solutionstar – initiating the electronically monitored appraisals, inspections, and escrows. The new website technology then automatically notifies the consumer, updating them on the sale’s progress.

Location matters in determining your house's value

Location matters in determining your house’s value

 

Location matters in determining your house’s value.

While almost everyone loves playing golf, saving money, and being centrally located to schools and restaurants – owning property on a golf course, near a Walmart or contiguous to a Natural green zone can add some serious cash to your property’s ultimate value. At least according to numerous university researchers who discovered the many variables that influence home prices around the country. Here’s a little taste of what they discovered: Living near natural areas can add up to $10,648 to your homes value. Owning a home on the golf course can add up to $8849 to your property’s value. Owning a home near Walmart can add between $4000 – $7000 to your property’s value. A close proximity to restaurants, schools, parks and shopping can increase your property’s value anywhere from $4000 – $34,000. (Not bad! Obviously though, many variables apply.)

That’s it for me on this fine Friday morning. It’s time to hit the gym, then off to the office. Should you have any questions about St. George Utah real estate, please do not hesitate to give me a call: Cell 435.619.2206.
