Easy Action Step Number Five

You can Choose your Source of Electricity in France

I hope you can see the photo above. I took this picture on the way to Lyon recently and it is an amazing contrast between the presence of a wind power plant and a nuclear fission power plant both located along the River Rhone.

Although the debates are many, many people would consider wind generation of electrical energy to be a more earth friendly approach to generating electricity than nuclear fission created electricity. Personally, I am someone who prefers the usage of solar energy as much as possible and well, France has lots of Sunshine so let us use it!

What is amazing is that when you look at the statistics here France with all the glorious sunshine does not generate that much energy from sunshine, in fact substantially less than a number of neighboring countries.

The good news is in France you can look at your EDF electricity bill and see the source of the electrical energy you are using and if you do not like it you can look for another supplier of electricity who offers electricity from other more earth friendly sources of power generation.

Please share this idea with friends and please let us know your ideas.

Come back tomorrow for the next Simple Action Step.
