    The Mayor’s Office of Sustainability is ambitious with its Greenworks plan to make Philadelphia the greenest city in America. One important part of the plan is the Philadelphia chapter of Solar America Cities, (one of 25 cities).

    Thank you Mayor Nutter & the Sustainability office for making easy to understand video tutorials for Philly homeowners.

    Here’s the Intro to Solar video that explains how to use Solar Energy in Philly:

    Still on the fence?  Most Philadelphia row homes can accommodate a solar array of about 4-6 kilowatts, and energy savings of $700 – $1050 per year.

      PHILADELPHIA, PA, 2.18.11

      Yougee, http://www.yougee.me, announces the launch of an eco conscious social network. Nestled in the Northern Liberties, the collaboration between Paul Trichon and Devnuts is being celebrated on Friday February 25th at 9pm. All are welcome to attend make RSVP to Paul@yougee.me.

      When Trichon needed a suit he asked, “Why is there not a place where I can search for an environmentally conscious suit and find other people who live sustainably?” Recognizing the power of social networking, he, along with the programmers of Devnuts, developed a platform where users create profiles about how they reduce, reuse and recycle.

      The launch will feature live performances by Glim Dropper and Ya Man Tee. In addition, beverages provided by local brewers Earth Bread & Bakery.
