Welcome to our newest member, Fox maine

Green Power Talk is a friendly place to learn about and discuss all things in green technology. Whether you are on-grid or off-grid, a do-it-yourself'er or a professional, make yourself at home, feel free to put your feet on the table, and have a cool one on us! Let's make Green Power Talk your (green) home away from home on the Internet!

Help us make Green Power Talk the place to go to for green technology projects on the Web. Please post; tell others about your projects, ask questions, show pictures. It is your postings that will bring others to the site, so don't be shy! Others will not do it for you, we need your help to make this a valuable and lively forum where great ideas can come together.

Green Power Talk, where the grass is always greener!



Renewable Energy Forums

The Pro Corner

The Pro corner is a place for those that make their living in renewable energy. From Pros, for Pros, helping each other out. Discuss business, products, installs, or ask your colleagues questions. Everyone can read, only Pros can post.

Wind Power

Talk about Wind turbines, their installation, theory, and design. Discuss the pros and cons of the various brands, or DIY.

Hydro Power

Have a stream on your property? You are one of the few lucky ones! Discuss here how to tap hydro electricity from it. Micro-hydro, or not-so-micro hydro.

Solar Electricity

Solar power is finally entering the main stream, from Alaska to Aruba. Talk about Solar panels (photovoltaics), their installation, brands, prices, sources, and new solar technology.

Solar Heating & Cooling

This is the place to discuss all solar technology that is used to make heat (or cold). Solar water and air heaters, solar cookers, solar AC, new ideas etc.


For all those bits and pieces or odds and ends that make up a renewable energy system. Batteries, inverters, switches, fuses, and yes, even fossil fuel backup generators.


Up to your neck in, eh, biomass? Burning wood? You came to the right place! This is the place to discuss all biofuels. For automotive fuels such as bio-diesel head over to the transportation section.


Building something that does not fit any of the other RE categories, or just want to keep it in a seperate forum? This is also a good place to for those that want to do their own installation of RE devices.

Government Incentives

Federal, country, state, provincial, or local incentives for installing renewable forms of energy. Rebates, and tax deductions. Politics is OK too, as long as you keep it civilized.


Sustainable Building

Green Shelter

Talk about earthships, straw bale, adobe, cob and other forms of efficient shelter. Discuss their construction, cost, and tips or tricks. If you have new housing ideas this is also a good place for it.

Passive Solar

For design, and construction of passive solar housing. Tell us how you did it and how it is working out.

Building Materials

For all general construction materials and techniques related to green building. SIPs, ICFs, domes, insulation, embodied energy and more.


Sustainable Transportation

Combustion Engines

Hybrids, (bio) diesel, LPG, vegetable oil, hydrogen, ethanol. If it has a traditional internal combustion engine this is the place to discuss it.

Electrical Transport

If it runs on electricity and goes from A to B, this is the place to discuss it. Electric cars, electric bikes, electric trains and so on. Including the 'fuel', solar or otherwise.

Alternate Transportation

Everything related to transportation that doesn't fall in the previous categories goes here. Such as future transport, new technology, or new fuels.


Other Areas of Interest

Living the Green Life

This is a good place to tell others about yourself. Talk about personal experience with RE, your daily sustainable life, or what you want to do, how you make your renewable energy, or the house you built, your struggles and successes.

The Lounge

This is a lightly moderated forum where almost anything (vaguely) related to green/renewable/sustainable living can be discussed. Politics, the next great idea for infinite free energy, your utopia, whatever tickles your fancy. Please be respectful of other people.

For Sale/Wanted Marketplace

Post items you have for sale, are looking for, or want to swap. This is for individuals only, commercial adds will be removed! Do not bump and no auctions or services allowed. A PRICE, NON-INFLATED, MUST BE POSTED WHEN SELLING ITEMS.
