Economic issues are important to all Americans, and one of the ways that we spend much of our money is in energy costs. Electricity and gas take a bite out of our pocketbooks, and In Focus Martin Sheen is looking at how researchers are looking at new sources of energy that might save money in the future.
One of the reasons that energy is expensive is the finite resources that are available to help generate electricity. Finding less limited fuel sources will be an important step towards reducing energy costs in the future.
In Focus PBS is looking at how clean, alternative energy sources might be the answer. Wind power is already helping to cut people’s energy costs in the Midwest, where windmills are harvesting nature’s energy and translating it to electricity for homes and businesses.
In other parts of the country, solar power is showing great promise. In the future, many homes will have the capability to harvest some of the sun’s energy through roof-mounted solar panels. This energy can be used right away or stored in batteries in the home. Some homeowners are already using this technology and selling some of their unused power back to the power company, giving these people more money in their pockets to do the things they enjoy.
In Focus with Martin Sheen will be highlighting alternative energy on the TV program and online at www.infocuptv.com. In the coming weeks, the producers at (561)826-0675 will also be developing a series of In Focus Martin Sheen scam investigation reports to help you keep your money safe. It is just another way that Americans can protect their economic future.
