On this episode of This Week in Startups, host Jason Calacanis (@jason), spoke with Emily Kirsch, co-founder & CEO of Powerhouse, an accelerator serving solar startups. I was mesmerized throughout the entire conversation which covered the steadily decreasing costs of solar, relevant government policies & subsidies, panel leasing vs ownership, and more.
This Cool Site of the Day (for 12/10) is AltaAeros Energies (#altaeroswind), a kickass awesome way to harness big wind power in a mobile, low power way. The Altaeros Buoyant Airborne Turbine (BAT; pictured above) leverages aerospace technology to lift a wind turbine into the winds beyond the reach of traditional towers (amazing). The completely automated, rapidly deployable system can safely and effectively bring wind power to remote sites that use expensive fossil fuel electricity today. Love it! Vote for it here and give it a 'thumbs up' above.
