We all have different reasons for conserving energy or expressing a desire to save the environment.
Fact is, for many people it's more about saving cash or not feeling guilty. In fact, you can be pretty conservative and still want to go with solar energy. Maybe you want to save money. Maybe you don't want to have to rely on the grid, fearing the day the terrorists take it down.
Whatever the case, it's no longer considered weird or "off-the-grid" to talk about solar energy, hybrid cars or planting your own garden. In some circles, it's a badge of honor.
