From Green Energy On-line, December 29, 2010.
“On Saturday, January 1, 2011, we will be notified by the Pepsi Refreah Project team if our project application has been approved for voting. If approved, a link will be provided on this site as well as on our social media accounts such as Twitter and Facebook.
We have been very active in passive solar and wind energy research and development using our own limited finances and resources. The Pepsi Refresh Project grant money, if received, will jump start our efforts, especially our planned design for solar augmented wind energy. Our advanced wind energy design should open new markets in lower wind speed areas.
We have already been in discussions and tests with two local established small businesses and will use them in our projects. We will immediately inject cash into the local economy with the intent of putting more people to work locally and nationally with labor intensive installations of passive solar and wind energy.
We will be utiliziing some active solar as well as passive solar. What we are particularly attracted to is more effectively using wind energy. Let’s face it. Using active or passive solar alone with a best case scenario of about 8 hours a day on average is not a good cost vs benefit solution.”
The president of Green Energy On-line expects to be approved by the Pepsi Refresh Project team. They have been using their own money and resources thus far and regardless of whether or not they receive this grant money, they will move forward. The biggest innovations in this country came from small businesses like the Wright Brothers and Thomas Edison and without grants.

Pepsi Refresh Project voting begins January 1, 2011, GEO Green Energy On-line
GEO, Green Energy On-line is a NC company developing and promoting simple passive solar and wind technology. Green Energy On-line currently has an application being reviewed by the Pepsi Refresh Project staff. If accepted, their project will be voted on by the general public.
From GEO, Green Energy On-line, December 1, 2010.
“Our application for a Pepsi Refresh Project grant was submitted early this morning and received for review.”
The plan, already in place, is to promote simple, inexpensive passive solar solutions. A house built in 1910 is being adapted for wind energy & passive solar. The first wind generator installed with passive solar collectors will provide heat for the downstairs.Long terms plans are to fine tune the passive solar and to experiment with wind generators that produce electricity with lower wind speeds and solar heat assistance.
Ultimately the goal is to promote passive solar energy, the cheapest and most flexible of our abundant free energy. A byproduct of this effort will be putting people to work installing the solutions, which can be as simple as the window heat unit.
We are also working on the aesthetic aspect of passive and active solar. Too many of the existing products are an eyesore. We are brainstorming with another company to provide more aesthetically pleasing and more varied products which will allow more people to embrace this technology. ”
