A couple weeks back, lobobrandon suggested we have a green living theme for one of our Weekly Topic Inspiration rounds, and I agree it’s an excellent subject.
I’m therefore making this week’s theme all about using renewable energy in everyday life. This can be as simple as walking more and as complex as installing green-energy collection tech in and around your home!
Here are some title ideas that include common keywords on the subject that you might like to use:
The Top 5 Alternative Energy Sources
A Guide to Solar Energy for Homes
Hot to Build Alternative Energy into Everyday Life
5 Types of Alternative Energy You Can Use Right Now
A Guide to Setting Up a Solar Water Heater
Tips on Boosting Home Energy Efficiency
5 Benefits of Using a Solar Water Heater
Tips on Getting Solar Energy for Your Home
The Best Renewable Energy Sources for Your Home
Tips on Getting Solar Panels for Your Home
A Guide to DIY Solar Panels
10 Creative Applications of Solar Energy
10 Advantages of Solar Energy for the Modern Household
The Basic Steps of Solar Panel Installation
5 Different Solar Panel Kits for Eco-Friendly Homeowners
How to Get Started with Solar Water Heating
The Best Solar Power Systems for Single Family Homes
Take note that you don't have to write about advanced tech to join in on the fun: you can always offer tips on using very simple renewable energy, such as the sun to dry clothes, or your body to convey you to work on foot or a bike!

Big thanks to lobobtandon for the idea! I'm looking forward to reading your Hubs
Dam!! I've got my final exams going on till the 16th. I've copied all the titles for reference I'll write hubs on most of these topics from the 16th onwards. Thanks so much for adding this topic. When I write the hubs I'll create a forum post so all of you'll know it
Thanks again Simone
Hey Thanks for the Topic Inspiration! I wrote a hub about the benefits hot water heaters: http://cwanamaker.hubpages.com/hub/5-Be … ter-Heater
This was a great follow up to an early hub I had written about the basic types of solar water heaters and how they work.
It's fantastic! I'm a big fan of solar... everything! Solar water heaters have been around for ages, too, and are so straightforward. What's not to love?
I find the comparison chart very helpful!
My neighbor has a roof top version solar water heater and he loves it!
Here's my hub. Hey there Simone hope you like it
Too bad I have my exams going on otherwise I'd have written many many more. There's so much to write about.
But when my exams are done I'll be adding them
http://lobobrandon.hubpages.com/hub/Bui … omes-alike
Btw this is my first hub on the weekly inspirational topics - it feels great
Super cool layout within your hub! Nice list of Eco friendly advice.
I've ranked amazingly for this hub on yahoo and bing but the big G has me nowhere may have to give it time
But the results are surprising on yahoo and bing even though they are ranked high I just got 2 views from them in 24 hours. If it were google I'd have lots more
Simone - this is a fantastic idea. I am all for green things. I just have to find time to do a hub. I am all inspired. I wrote a hub on Eco-Friendly New Year's Resolution - http://tarajeyaram.hubpages.com/_Hub007 … -For-2012.
I want to write more on this topic as it is so dear to my heart. Thank you for your fantastic idea.
I looked at ways to make renewable energy mobile and more geared to todays on the go person.

This a cool topic. Perfect, I just joined hubpages
I can contribute some as I'm into green living topics as well.
Outstanding! Welcome to HubPages imaverick! Be sure to checkout our very helpful Learning Center, I learn so much there! here is a direct link for you! http://hubpages.com/_2dhw39mw9bj85/lear … r/contents
I Can't wait to read your work!
Thanks for posting such a nice topic. I am late in visiting the forum. However, I have written few articles about the topic long back.
I would like to read some of the hubs about the topic.
I've posted my hub. I wrote about using a solar panel kit from a retailer and using it to produce and use my own power. I saw this Topic Inspiration and though it would be an awesome way to share with others what I've done and continue to do every day.
I enjoyed your hub! Wanna come install a kit for me? Please?
This is so cool! I hadn't read much of anything about solar kits that folks could set up themselves before. They're a cool option!
They certainly are Simone! Its great to be able to have enough juice to provide light and a working internet connection for several hours when the power is out too.
What a great way to show off your passionate hobby for saving energy! Clear writing and super good personal experience information. Highly recommend this hub!
Hello Jesimpki - Just visited your hub 20 seconds ago. How did you master all this, and are you available near Richmond, Virginia?
Is the second idea a typo? If not, what is a hub in the non-Hubpages sense?
You always share valuable information. Sometimes just when I was looking for something interesting to write about you jog my memory with great topics.
What a great way to show off your passionate hobby for saving energy! Clear writing and super good personal experience information. Thanks
One of my favorite topics!
Here's my hub about it. I hope it doesn't appear to hurried, it has been days since my last hub was written, and I am just glad I came across this topic and I was able to string something together!
Whoah, THIS IS AMAZING!!! I've never heard of solar bottle bulbs before. Love it!! I think it's a fabulous Hub. So glad you joined WTI this week!
Can you say mandatory disaster kit item? This is really cool, those MIT folks are pretty sharp cookies!
Once again I want to thank you Simone for your weekly topics. They are amazing. I just completed my hub on using Renewable Energy through conservation. Here is the link: http://lindysworld.hubpages.com/hub/Ene … ble-Energy
Wow, thanks Lindy's World! Love the Hub you wrote. You've outlined a bunch of conservation methods and efforts that I had not heard of before. Also, I'm so pleased to read that new wood stoves come with built-in catalytic converters- how cool is that??
Your information on the amount of oil Americans use daily is staggering!
Hey everyone! I want to point out that you don't have to be a renewable energy expert to write a Hub on this week's WTI subject. There are lots of sources of renewable energy that do NOT involve complicated tech. Consider, for example, human energy, which is quite renewable! You could always write a Hub on working more of THAT into everyday life.
Here are a few things to consider when setting up, or revising a Renewable Energy Home Office!
HubHugs to the room~
Hello every one here is my hub!
http://cardisa.hubpages.com/hub/5-Diffe … Homeowners
Yeah! I love the layout, too, and am really impressed by the cool solar kits one can buy these days!
While my hub doesn't focus primarily on renewable sources of energy, it does discuss really simple ways to save energy.
Did you know, for example, that your plugged in television and connected DVD player, cable box, xboxes, etc. all use energy even when they're turned off?
This is often referred to as phantom energy, and ways to eliminate phantom energy loss and other losses of energy are the focus of this hub.
Watt metering is a great idea! Top-notch hub Ktrapp!
I wonder if our own perspiration added to wind energy can help us to find a true energy saver/
Watt metering can become quite addictive as I am discovering. I didn't mention it in my hub, but there are some libraries in the U.S. that actually let you checkout/borrow watt meters.
THIS.... HUB.... IS... AMAZING O________________O
OK, dumb question: when does the week begin, and when is the deadline for publishing the Hub? I'm working on one. Thanks.
Since the original post says posted 4 days ago I say you got a total of 2 days more not sure if its 3 dont take chances
http://mary615.hubpages.com/hub/Conserv … ar-Drivers
Here's my Hub on conserving energy.
Good point with those safety tips! You might add some notes about how much money / energy is saved by riding a bike, etc. I would be most interested to know those details!
Lots of great hubs here, I’m working my through them. And since it’s all too easy to get caught up in the worthiness of it all, I couldn’t resist doing an ever so slightly silly hub. (It’s got a serious side too!)
http://melovy.hubpages.com/hub/Fun-Tips … Efficiency
Hope you enjoy it!
Hey everyone! Thanks for the fantastic renewable energy tips you shared! We have a new topic up now- children's health! Stop by the forum thread to join a fun new round of WTI!
Hey Thanks for the Topic Inspiration! I wrote a hub about how to choose your solar water heating system, i hope you like it.
