Eco Friendly wine

This in from Vivi's Wine Journal.

Basically, the OP is right. It's all about the dollar. As oil and other fossil fuels are becoming more expensive, I would expect to see more firms switching to solar when they can. Places like wineries are a great example becaue of the long roofs they need. In the near future (and maybe even now) I would expect to see dairy farmers, chicken farmers, and other farming activities which have extremelly long barns. All of that surface area could be used to harness the power of the sun. This isn't practical in all areas, but genereally speaking this is a good thing.

I am posting this because it goes perfectly with my post from earlier today. If firms can stand to benefit from adding solar tech to their building AND trade carbon credits at the same time? Now we are talking some serious cash flow and some serious innovation. Too bad we don't play nice with the other kids in the sandbox.
