GreenMan Technologies Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2011 Results -- American Power Group to Thank

And get this...the best part of Greenman is a little company called APG... American Power Group.
They have successfully designed a dual fuel engine that can run on mostly natural gas and a little diesel.

Three Months ended December 31, 2010 Compared to the Three Months ended December 31, 2009
Net sales from continuing operations for the three months ended December 31, 2010 increased $352,000 or 80 percent to $792,000 as compared to net sales of $440,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2009. The increase is primarily attributable to increased revenue associated with our dual fuel subsidiary "APG" (American Power Group) during the three months ended December 31, 2010 and a $57,000 increase in our molded products subsidiary.
During the three months ended December 31, 2010, we incurred a negative gross profit of $22,000 as compared to a negative gross profit of $254,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2009. The reduction in the negative gross profit was primarily attributable to a $295,000 increase in dual fuel related revenue as compared to only $65,000 of revenue during the three months ended December 31, 2009. Due to lower playground tile production during the three months ended December 31, 2010 we were unable to fully absorb all manufacturing overhead costs, which contributed to the negative gross profit during the quarter.

Solar Panels...what am I getting myself into with an alternative energy

It seems even the most efficient homes with all the best products and appliances will have to cover the entire roof. That means unless you are ready to put in some time and money this project will be hardley worth attempting.
It will take at least a 300 watt panel to maintain about a dozen lightbulbs all day. That means if you spend a few thousand dollars to get a pannel or two your investment will see a positive return in 10 years. I would make sure your home is up to standards before you expect any sort of return.
That doesn't mean that a solar pannel isn't worth the price just to have some green energy. Using the sun to produce any energy is worth the cost and will help drive electricity prices down.

Go green!

Greenman Tech a dual fuel future...what does that mean?

So this company GMTI has a smaller company called APG or American Power Group. Now the thing that is very cool about APG is they are trying to change the way we fuel vehicles for the better of the world.
A dual fuel system that uses mostly natural gas. The excelent thing about natural gas is how much we have inside the US boundaries

What have you done latley?

What green things have you done latley?

I have not been able to do much besides recycle a few cans...however I do have about 900 shares in a company that is attempting to bridge the void between the united states and oil. If we would use vehicles that relied on only a fraction of diesel and mostly natural gas we as a county would be one major stepping stone closer to a more green reality.

Everyone must join in the fight...if your addition to the movement is to use a little less energy in your home everyday by shutting of the lights, then so be it and thank you for your help. Those of us who really want to fight back lets get going on more efficient solar panel and wave generators.

A little help everyday will make the difference. Keep fighting.
