    I am currently an IT and I'm a soldier in the military. Somehow I got to work in this underground office (protected from missiles) and I work shifts everyday. I can't really leave or change the job because that would only get me into trouble for unobeying a command that can even result in jail. It's really hard for me not to have a window, not to see sunlight or rain most of the day. I find myself striving for "nature" and fresh air when I get released sometimes in the weekends or during the week. I have two more years in the army and I want to make the most of them but my mentality hurts my well being. How can I not take this so hard?

    Best answer: Yes, of course. The water is drawn out of the ground with a pump, which is true whether you actually have a pump at your house or if you have city water as out of the ground is where city water towers get their water from. Water pumps are powered by electricity, which is the result of burning some fuel down at the electrical plant. Whether that fuel is a fossil fuel or nuclear, it results in pollution. Also, if you're taking a shower that uses hot water, that water is heated by a hot water heater that is fueled by either gas or electricity. Again, either way, it creates pollution. Finally, you're using soap and detergents in that shower, turning the water into what's called "gray water," which then goes down the drain to your septic tank or to the city sewer to be processed as gray water is polluted water.

They say utility companies raise their rates some certain percentage per yer and in 20 years the average utility bill will be $500 per month. I boight my solar from a local electrical distributor for $6,700 including tax and its all a warranty of 20 years. My current bill is $130 per month. Then size i got will completely offset my bill and after approx 5 years all power is free. So how is solarcity a good deal? Cheers!
