Solar Panels or Wind Energy? Which Is Best For You?

imagesSolar power and wind (power) turbine generators have both become front-runners in energy-saving technology.  They are the two main focal points in renewable energy systems today. Residential capabilities and accessibility in Bay Area neighborhoods lean more toward solar, however, wind generators have their advantages in rural or open areas.

Solar panels attract the sun’s rays, where wind turbines do not rely on the sun. They are most effective where there is a breeze or chances of high winds, such as on the shoreline, to generate power.

Solar and wind turbines are both advantageous to our environment, where they produce clean energy. They both can produce energy to heat a home, swimming pool, and even be a “driving” force for your electric car.

Solar panels are attached to a roof, are easy to install, and they provide no noise. A wind turbine’s effectiveness on a roof would not be as productive citing noise coming through walls, for example. (Check with your city about installation, as some cities might frown on wind generators within normal city or town limits.)

Both solar and wind turbines can be tied to or not tied to the energy grid; however, both will need a battery bank if you decide to use an “off-the-grid” system. They both can save us money, although, solar panels are more costly.

Wind generators will produce energy from the wind 24/7. They do not require the sun to be effective in saving energy and money. Solar panels require the power of the sun and can only be harnessed during sunlight hours. Where solar panels are pretty much maintenance free after installation, they will need to be cleaned. They will collect dust and dirt which prevents sunlight from coming in. Solar panels do have a 25-year guarantee, and are more reliable. There is a chance, though, for damage from something like a baseball, rock, or hail. They, however, have no moving parts and produce no noise. Where pretty much the only maintenance of a solar panel would be cleaning, wind turbines have moving parts.

Wind generators may require repair and replacement of its moving parts on occasion. Their propellers are detrimental to birds, and they also provide noise coming from the propellers. Where wind turbines are less expensive to obtain, maintenance can be more costly.

By doing research on solar power vs. wind power, you will determine which system for your energy savings, is best for you.

“Christmas is the Spirit of Giving without A Thought of Getting.” ~Thomas Monson

large_transparent_christmas_tree_with_presents_clipart  Christmas is a time to reflect upon the true meaning of the holy season which guides our hearts and prepares us for all things good. We are called upon to demonstrate kindness, understanding, and patience toward others.

During this season of giving, we are reminded of those who are less fortunate: the lonely, displaced, and disadvantaged families in our world, and we are called upon to offer hope. While it is up to each one of us, often the gift of just one smile might bring anticipation out of despair.

In a few days, we will celebrate the birth of Christ and all of what that means.  We are blessed to have so much where and how we live. Be thankful this Christmas as you enter into your time of giving and receiving, to remember why He was born. Celebrate with a light heart since what matters is the gift of your presence among those who love and are loved by you.

We, at BlueStar Company appreciate your business and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a blessed and prosperous 2017.

Giving Thanks

Pinecone-Turkeys-Craft            For the gifts of family and friends, we give thanks. It’s that time of year when we express our appreciation for those we hold dear. We join on Thanksgiving to commemorate the very first gathering with native fare.

Looking to our sense of compassion and humility, we find the true spirit of the season. No matter how, where, or with whom we gather together, the feeling of family is present. The ritual of meeting and eating somehow brings hearts close with conversation, laughter, and camaraderie. We share with those who bring us joy.

We give thanks for those who mean the most to us; but also, for all that we have. Our clients are our lifeblood and no holiday would be complete without a heartfelt thank you for the gift of their business and friendship. Thank you never seems to be enough.

As we ponder on all that we have, we must first remember our incredible gift of life…why we live, where we live, with whom, and most importantly, how we live. Make each day count, remain positive, love one another, and show gratitude always. We have so much to be grateful for, and need to realize that each day.

We, at Blue Star Company Inc. are grateful for you, and wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Earth Day 2016

Earth-Day-2015Earth Day, April 22nd, is not only a movement that was started in 1970 by John McConnell; it also promises to be the making of history in 2016. Earth Day was created as a way for us to give back to our Mother Earth by planting trees, cleaning up America, and saving on energy and fuels. In other words, we began the movement to solve environmental issues. Many programs, festivals, and groups gather to beautify our parks, clean up beaches, walk or bike to work, and raise awareness of our environment.

This year, history will be made as President Barack Obama, and Chinese President Xi Jinping sign the Paris Climate Agreement on Earth Day. The ceremony highlights the signing of this agreement which aims to reduce global warming.

As we look ahead, it is our responsibility to restore, give back and clean up. It is our Earth and we can afford, for at least one day, to indulge her.  We owe her that much.

By taking time to do our part, we all win. Just becoming aware alone will prove to be a significant move toward developing good habits in recycling, and how to take care of our future. Teaching our children next weekend, will help them adopt our good behavior when they inherit our legacy.

Blue Star Electronic Recycling is an active participant each year by hosting a myriad of free recycling drop-off events for corporations. The e-waste is properly recycled locally and in a secure manner.

(Please remember also that Blue Star Electronic Recycling provides electronic waste pickups for businesses and corporations throughout the year.)

There are many activities in your area that will be devoted to learning more about how we can help on a daily basis. Picking up trash in a public setting, and planting a tree or flowers will help our parks thrive. By learning more about the vehicles we drive and how riding a bike is healthy for us in more than one way, we give back to the future of our children.

Earth Day 2016 is a weekend filled with many opportunities to get involved and have fun with your family, while learning and engaging in those events that are smart for our environment, as well as our health overall.

Happy Holidays from Blue Star Recycling Company!

Holidays-2560x1810         The holidays are upon us and we celebrate! With bright, colorful lights, images

and sayings of the season, and a giving attitude, we align ourselves with what’s

right in the world.

At this time of year especially, we look to how we can help one another.  We

stretch ourselves in ways that we never imagined to give of our time, our

goodwill, and to offer a diverse array of resources.

As we open our hearts this Christmastime, be aware of amazing ways to reach

out. As you do, you will experience huge benefits in the spirit of the season. Our

purposes here may be different; however, there is no difference in the way that

we give back to those around us – and to those who have touched our lives in

various ways.

Recycling, reclaiming, and reissuing are also important ways in which we give

back. Do so with enthusiasm for our planet.

As we relinquish our deep-rooted technology that once brought us bliss, it is now

time for new experiences, opportunities, and tools to make our lives and those of

others more joyful and productive. By acknowledging that our good deeds help

our population; we allow our thoughts and deeds to turn toward sharing,

celebrating, and creating a new existence for ourselves and those around us.

We take this opportunity to thank our customers for their tremendous generosity

this year.

No matter how you say it…Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays – we, at Blue Star

Recycling Company, wish you and yours a very special holiday season.

Memorial Day…A Time to be Grateful

Memorial Day…the day when we give thanks to our men and women who gave the definitive cost…their lives. We are free today because of their bravery, and selflessness.

We, at BlueStar Recycling, encourage you to thank the heroes; those who are serving and fighting to preserve our nation and keep us safe. What they do is so important and deserves our gratitude.

Memorial Day is much more than a holiday where we attend barbeques, fairs, and picnics. We stop and consider all of our finest who gave on the battlefields and elsewhere. War is not only gaged on the frontlines. It is fought in our cities, and on the homefront.

Teach and read to your children about who defends our country, who the people are who dress up in fatigues and proudly walk our streets to keep a vigil so that we can remain confident.

Celebrate what independence means to you. Celebrate for the children who get to meet their dads for the first time. Celebrate for the wives or husbands who come home and are able to find jobs. Celebrate what you have because of what has taken place in foreign lands and at home. Remember the uniform…remember that it stands for freedom, justice and our America!

Mother’s Day…A Day of Her Own.

Mother’s Day is an entire 24 hours set apart to honor mothers. We celebrate that special woman who, in most cases, gave us life. She is the one who raised us, gave us meaning, integrity, and a place in this world. We celebrate motherhood in general, the gift of maternal nurturing, bonding, and the inspiration that moms play in our culture.

Our relationship with our mothers is one like no other! As we look back, we may remember the delicious aroma of dinner, baking cookies, reading stories, learning how to ride a bike, and receiving a kiss or a hug goodnight. Mom was the Brownie leader, the one who helped with school projects, the one who braided our hair, paid for the barber, and held our hand across the street. She also said NO…a lot! We know that while she only did that for our own good; in our own minds…it wasn’t!

Over the years, the role of mom has evolved to more than dinner on the table, or team mom for soccer, and Little League. Mom now is often the dad too. She might wear many hats in a family, and be the one who “brings home the bacon.” The new American family might have mom at the helm as Mom 2.0.

While Mother’s Day is not a federal holiday, some businesses close, while some flourish with record-breaking sales. Always celebrated on a Sunday, celebrations around the Bay Area remind us that our attention, for all the things that she has done and continues to do for us, be turned toward mom. During the year, it is the most popular day for telephone calls.

Mother’s Day celebrations began in the U.S. around the 20th century. With a few intervals over the years, the heartfelt “holiday” is now well-regarded with hand-made gifts, flowers, a meal out, a BBQ, a movie, a greeting card, and/or a phone call. This Sunday, May 10 – we honor those we call “Mom!

Happy Mother’s Day!
