Solar Energy Resources
- We’ve known light could be turned into electricity since 1839 when French physicist, A. E. Becquerel, discovered the photovoltaic effect. It wasn’t until the 1950s, however, that the first solar cells were available commercially, when Bell Labs produced them for use in outer space. In the decades since, improvements in solar technology have been tremendous, as have drops in solar power cost. Since 1977, the price of solar panels has dropped approximately 100 times over, and solar power is now cheaper than power from the grid for billions of people.
Zer0 Waste Resources
- Cuyahoga County Solid Waste Management District
- Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program "The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste Management District partners with the 59 communities in the county to offer local, more frequent collection events for disposal of household hazardous wastes (HHW). Household hazardous waste is collected from residents by the city service department and is delivered to the District’s year-round Special Waste Convenience Center. Collection events are held only at city service departments; the District's facility is not open to the general public. This program is for Cuyahoga County residents only. Most communities will only accept and manage waste from their own residents."

Clean Air Resources
- Permitting Under the Clean Air Act "The Clean Air Act (CAA) establishes a number of permitting programs designed to carry out the goals of the act. Some of these programs are directly implemented by EPA through its Regional Offices but most are carried out by States, Local Agencies and approved Tribes." --EPA
