|This is from the UK; phone home!|
Wind generators are one way, but in my thinking, solar is the best. It's quiet, it doesn't interfere with the environment and every day, as more and more people turn to it as a power source, it becomes more affordable.

I'm only going to quote a small portion of this article on Take Part, by author David McNair; you can click on the link to read the rest (it's not long, I promise!). Hopefully you'll take something away from it that will encourage you to seek some solar solutions for yourselves. Even if it is as small a thing as a phone charger*, that's a start.
"...these days, groups of Masai women are leading a renewable energy revolution. Hauling solar devices on donkeys from village to village, they’re transforming the lives of locals with light and power, thanks to a program launched by renewable energy developer . The women are provided with energy-efficient lights, solar panels, and rechargeable batteries at a discount, which they in turn sell for a profit. They are also trained to help install the panels and lights at individual homes. To date, 200 women are participating across five village groups; together, they’ve installed solar-powered units in more than 2,000 homes."
*(This is the link to the solar phone charger and light I got awhile back. I love this product along with the company's philosophy. It is the first solar set up on my houseboat. One for the Turtle will be next.)
Have a try this Tuesday! Do something trickier.
