Published annually by renewable energy Long Island (reLI), the 2010-11 LI Green Guide was released to the public early last month.
The guide is the third installment from reLI and four pages longer than last year’s edition. Part of the reason for the extra length is the extra editorial content. There are 11 articles all together, three more than last year’s guide, exploring a variety of issues including solar thermal systems, green apps for mobile technology, the likely marriage of energy efficiency and renewables, green buildings, commercial energy efficiency, wind energy, a in-depth piece with actress and activist Gloria Reuben regarding climate change, plus more.
As always, the guide begins with a welcoming letter written by reLI Executive Director Gordian Raacke to readers. Also, like previous guides, this year’s edition concludes with a consumer directory listing businesses, professionals, and other organizations in the local green marketplace. The directory is a bit longer that last year thanks to new organization. It also includes a new, helpful feature: a color-coded key which allows readers to easily identify what listings specializes in.
The best thing about the guide: it’s free! You can find a copy at local Whole Food Market stores, at green-focused events, or at the reLI website where you can request a copy, or save some paper (even though the guide is printed on recycled material) and read it via PDF format here.
