Profile Information

Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
I am a solar energy inventor and manufacturer, and am currently writing a solar blog on this site . I have been in the solar energy business for forty years. I also sell wind Turbines, own a company that builds off the power grid micro homes and I can get any energy saving product that is manufactured world-wide. We intend to mass produce off the grid micro homes. President A to Z Global Marketing AKA www.chinadepot.com .
What excites you about this campaign?
Any program that will get us off foreign oil dependency excites me! Also the prospect of meeting others who share similar beliefs and ideas. It's up to us to solve the energy problems because the governments of the world will not.
What do you want to do to help?
I will continue to use my company and resources to develop energy saving products and low cost energy efficient housing.
I also want to start a free exchange of ideas to help solve these terrible energy and pollution problems. I would like to leave a better world for my five grand children. We are making progress in the micro home area.

Lost Your Job – Consider Starting A Business by Walt Barrett

This could be the best time.

Unfortunately, many people have recently lost their jobs, and many more people are about to lose their jobs. My view is that as long as you work for someone else you are never secure. Today you are nothing but a number in the corporate book keeping system. You are seen either as an asset, or a liability, nothing more. There is no future in that. So if you are already out of work anyway, I see it as an opportunity to finally have the time to start a business. So… Continue

Are Minimum Home Size Zoning Codes Discriminatory by Walt Barrett

It's no secret that one of my divisions is building micro homes. We get a lot of mail from people that are very interested in these smaller homes, and one of their big complaints is that their city, or town has what are referred to as minimum home square footage standards, or other words to that effect. Now I can understand that no one wants a bunch of shacks, and yards littered with junk cars etc. in their neighborhood, and I totally agree with that. But those same zoning laws are designed to… Continue

Some Solar Confusion by Walt Barrett


Some Solar Confusion by Walt Barrett

I received an email this morning from a friend of mine. Some people are confusing the cost of solar electric systems with the cost of solar hat water heating systems. This is the letter below and my response.

My Blog Said.

“I can understand the reluctance of people to invest in high end solar electric systems priced at $30,000.00 to $60,000.00, especially, in these difficult economic times. However, I am really troubled by the… Continue

Some Thoughts About Micro Homes And Micro Apartments by Walt Barrett

Micro Homes

Some Thoughts About Micro Homes And Micro Apartments by Walt Barrett

The question of land, its availability, and the cost keeps nagging at my brain. There is no point in designing, and selling a mass produced home for the price of a compact car if there is no legal place to put it. There’s no point either in putting one on a trailer frame as far as I am concerned. If I wanted to live in a trailer, I would simply buy a used one very cheaply. I see them on Craig’s List… Continue

Hello. My name is Adam. I have been developing an incredible new design of windmill. This project is in jeopardy as my financial backer has defaulted and now relatively minor debts are becoming legal issues. This project holds the promise of reducing wind power costs by 1/2 and also providing large amounts for lower investments. Also these machines can be installed on existing wind farms to increase output on the same real estate as these machines utilize wind 100 ft & below. I need help so I am reaching out. Adam

Hi Walt!

Hi Fellow Rhode Islander!

We are down to less than 5 weeks....

We need support for RI Congressional Districts -01 and -02. Can you gather some signatures for us? We need to get this done asap. We also need help with getting our representatives to sign the pledge. Can you help?

245-6217 home
580-1916 cell

Here is the petition:

If you fax in some signatures of support, please put Rhode Island across the top and let me know so I can keep a running number! Need to get to 1,000!

I am hosting a RI renewables Meet Up, Thursday morning fo a one hour coffee strategy session in Providence. Can you join us?

In the meantime, would you please download 10 pledges, get them signed and fax them to the 888# on the bottom of the pledge. It is an easy ask - Boone has done the hard work. We have over 500 RI members. 10 pledges each gets us 5,000 more RI'ers. I look forward to working with you.

Our RI forefathers were the ones who held up the process and demanded democracy hundreds of years ago. We have a long history of being the leaders on important issues. WE CAN DO THIS!

I look forward to hearing from you.


RI Renewable Member,
RI may be small in size, but certainly not ability.

Need your help, buddy

Mornng Walt!

Will you pass this on to your friends AND participate, please.

Today is the day! for all who believe in their hearts that we can do this, to get 10 signed pledges! Will you print off 10 pledges, get them signed and fax them back? The clock is ticking and it is time for us to ramp it up. Tap into that moment when you first saw this and thought, "WOW, this could really happen", go out of your comfort zone a bit and get it done. We only have 80 days until inauguration day- to create our own destiny. We have incredible momentum - WILL YOU PLEASE GET 10 TODAY?!

Thank you and Best,
