Follow These Steps to Take Advantage of Solar Energy

As prices of coal, gas and oil continue to climb, households across the country are switching to alternative sources of energy, which are both eco-friendly and money-saving. Scientists and researchers have been looking for the perfect energy source for decades—one that is dependable, renewable and abundant—and solar energy fits the bill. Consumers searching for an effective energy solution for their home or commercial space should consider solar Idaho projects, as they are affordable, dependable and easily implemented.

 


Before a property can be powered by solar energy, these steps must be followed:


• Calculate Electricity Needs


Homeowners should study their total electricity consumption and usage patterns. With this information, comparisons will help determine which available solutions will provide maximum benefits.


• Assess Options


There is no “one size fits all” solution for solar energy needs. In fact, there are multiple options from which to choose depending on each unique situation and needs. As an example, installations of solar Twin Falls or Boise or Mountain Home would each have a different design due to diverse conditions. The scope and size of each new device or system depends on individual electricity needs, as well as the amount and times of ideal sunlight, shade and darkness.


• Compare Installers


When comparing installers, it is very important to select a certified professional—one who is qualified and with direct experience implementing the solution you choose. Only an experienced professional can provide an accurate assessment of the site and determine the best solutions.


• Coordinate Installation


The installer will take the lead on installation day and guide each involved party through the process. Partnering with an experienced installer ensures that the project will be precisely planned and proceed smoothly.


Anyone searching for cost-effective, efficient and environmentally-sound solar products should look no further than EvenGreen Technology.

Reasons to Buy a New Boise, Idaho Home with Help from Realtors

Buying a new home is widely regarded as one of the most unpleasant experiences in our lives. In fact, a recent study indicated that the home-buying process is more stressful than bankruptcy, divorce or even bereavement over the death of a loved one. Whether it is the prospect of parting with a large chunk of life savings, dealing with banks or lenders, moving to a new area or simply finding your dream home in a tightening market with increasing prices, the process of buying the right property is never easy. However, when you locate a market that has all the characteristics you find important—excellent schools, sound infrastructure, great employment opportunities, endless outdoor activities, fair prices and rising values—the process becomes a much more positive experience.
You will fall in love with one such city: Boise. Boise, continually rated one of the best and safest cities in America, was also recently ranked among the top five cities for business and careers. Boise is a beautiful and thriving city, with abundant parks and waterways surrounded by the peaceful Treasure Valley and a business hub in the heart of downtown. With great opportunities for business and jobs, Boise is a terrific place for working professionals to relocate to and find new homes at great prices.

Boise’s real estate market is booming, making now the best time to invest in—or relocate to—one of the country’s most-awarded cities. The city has many different neighborhoods and pockets, each with its own identity, amenities and new homes in Boise Idaho that are available. Boise has something for everyone, from new high-rise condominiums in the downtown core to century-old historic mansions to acreages suitable for horses and everything in between. Sorting out the market’s inventory, finding which area will work best for you and your family, deciding on your desired size, age school district and location and other essential tasks are made much easier with the help of an experienced real estate professional. An expert can help you find the perfect property and will work hard to secure it at a fair value.

As most know, realtors are licensed professionals within the real estate industry and are in sync with the nuances of an increasingly dynamic real estate market. An effective realtor will draw on his or her networking skills to provide clients with access to all options within a specified market—existing homes listed for sale, reputable builders and owners of bare land on which new homes can be built, trusted remodeling companies who can expertly rehab “fixer-uppers” and others. Real estate agents fully understand the needs of their clients and take these needs into account when helping to find the ideal property within a stipulated budget.

Realtors not only help to find your dream home, but also provide invaluable support throughout the home-buying process. They keep an eye on potentially overlooked details such as deadlines, HOA restrictions, repairs and their costs, governmental regulations, property taxes, inspections and much more while ensuring compliance with all involved legalities.

One of Boise’s top real estate agencies is The Mike Brown Group. The Mike Brown Group is a team of experienced realtors led by Mike Brown, a Boise Idaho real estate industry veteran. The company is widely recognized for offering a wide range of available properties across Boise, the greater Treasure Valley and the rest of Idaho. The realtors that make up The Mike Brown Group are committed to providing clients with professional and friendly support and exceeding all expectations. With hundreds of years of combined experience, The Mike Brown Group is one of the most knowledgeable and proficient in Idaho’s competitive market.

“Idaho” by Emily Ruskovich
Idaho: A Novel - Emily Ruskovich

The title says, "Idaho - A Novel". I think the last bit is an assertion of intent meant to guide people like me who reach the end of the book knowing that I'd read something wonderful but not really being able to label it.

 

Each chapter in "Idaho" is a work of art. Emily Ruskovich can write in a way that makes you fully aware of how a particular person is experiencing something that is vivid and immediate but also ladened with context and possibility.

 

At one point she even helped me see inside the head of a blood hound on a search, head down, ears and folds of skin dampening all other stimuli except the hundreds of scents that contain the one scent I am looking for.

 

It seemed to me, that for much of the novel, I had become that blood hound and that each chapter was a scrap of fabric, soaked in sorrow, confusion, regret, guilt, love and, occasionally hope, that I would bend over and sniff at until I had extracted every scent of emotion and traced the trails of circumstance, intent, memory and consequence that connect the chapters and the people in them.

 

It is an intense, absorbing experience that speaks to my senses and my emotions but, by itself, does not satisfy my need for a narrative leading to some form of release. The nonlinear nature of this narrative, the emphasis on moments of being and intense but bounded insights into a person, meant that reading "Idaho" felt more like experiencing other people's lives than it did reading a novel with a beginning, a middle and an end. I was given lots of hard, emotionally taxing questions but I was offered only the inference of answers, much as I am in real life.

 

There is a narrative. It is triggered by an act of violence that changes the lives of almost all of the characters in the book. Revealing this narrative in a non-linear way is not done to enhance the tension or to build to a great reveal, but to show that we are not the events that we live through. They can harm us or help us but the self we bring to each moment is what shapes the outcome of an event.

 

I'm sorry if that sounds obscure. Emily Ruskovich would never say anything so clumsily as that. It is merely me, trying to find meaning in what I was reading.

 

In "Idaho" I spent time seeing the world through the eyes of many people: May, a six year old girl living an isolated rural life in which her most intense relationship is with June, her older sister, whom she simultaneously loves and resents; Elizabeth, spending her life in prison for murder and trying to allow herself friendship and perhaps even love; Jenny, a woman who is trying to abnegate her right to anything she desires but who cannot stop herself from offering something of herself to others; Wade, a man who has survived tragedy and guilt and love but who is losing himself with each memory that slips out of reach; and Anne, who falls lives a life of sorrow-filled love that she does not feel entitled to cut herself free from.

 

I will remember these people for a long time. I will remember their joys and their pain and their ability to survive as long as they are remembered by someone, even if it is only themselves. I will remember the mountain they lived on and how its wildness and isolation and unforgiving winters shaped them like wind eroding sandstone.

 

Yet I still struggle with "Idaho" as "a novel". Probably this says more about my expectations than about Emily Ruskovich's writing but it changed my experience of the book. If "Idaho" had been a collection of short stories, I'd have gone, "How wonderful. This is like reading Alice Munro" but it was labelled a novel so I found myself expecting more connection.

 

The best example of what I mean is a character in this book, a young man who loses his leg through an accident in high school, who's experiences and thoughts are beautifully described but who seems to have only the most tangential connection to the other people in the book. I invested my imagination in him. I didn't like him but I began to understand him. Yet I couldn't make him fit and my inability to do so distracted and annoyed me.

 

I strongly recommend this book, novel or not. The writing is simply wonderful. The experiences are harrowing but in a way that made me more empathetic than horrified.

I am astonished that this is Emily Ruskovich's debut novel. I look forward to reading everything else that she writes.

 

I listened to the audiobook version of "Idaho" which is read with consummate skill by Justine Eyre. She helped my hound dog follow the scent trails in this book much more easily and with more passion than I had only read the text.

 

I've included below an extract of her performance and a short interview where she talks about her experience in narrating "Idaho"

Library Haul
Idaho: A Novel - Emily Ruskovich
The Breakdown - B. A. Paris
All Our Wrong Todays: A Novel - Elan Mastai
The Good People - Hannah Kent
Method 15/33 - Shannon Kirk

Ok, so I have to admit that I am (more than) a little late to the party but I recently discovered Booktube. Embarrassing I agree but there we are, it is out. Anyway, looking at people book hauls I came across the above books and thought they sounded quite interesting. I was horrified to find that our library has raised its reservation fees but nevertheless 3 were reserved and as usual all came in at the same time. So there you have it, I have a busy month ahead of me, it's a good job I've got 2 weeks off!
