During the American Idol finale, Jason Mraz revealed backstage that he was getting ready to power his farm with new solar array. Now, the wordplay singer has posted a photo on his blog showing the groundbreaking of the new install. He writes,

“This week on the farm we broke ground on our new sun system. We’re going solar! In just a few days, an array of shiny collectors will mark a celebrated site among the oil green avocado trees. Our system will allow us to run both the house and studio on sun power alone, even on cloudy days, eliminating yet another consuming property from the power grid.”

“With the sun estimated to burn another 5 billion years, I’m stoked about my energy independence. In addition to having a 0.00 electric bill, my solar system will at times send energy back into the grid, reducing the amount of coal or nuclear energy required to keep Southern California illuminated. (The meter on the house actually runs backward when this happens.) San Diego isn’t yet paying for the energy I have to share, but there is a possibility of donating the excess energy to other households.”

We’re stoked for Jason too — and look forward to additional photos of his progress! Check out his blogging goodness here.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
