Carbon Credits from Emissions Free Energy

An individual has a solar electric panel on his roof. The energy produced by this panel is energy that didn’t have to come from the local utility. Say that burning coal generates 70% of the electricity produced by that utility. The solar panel “saved” that amount of coal from entering the atmosphere. 

The individual registers his or her panel with the ICBE and we calculate the amount of carbon dioxide and other gases that would otherwise have been involved in generating power at that location. We write a credit against the reductions achieved, arrange to sell it, and after subtracting our costs plus a profit, provide a yearly return to the individual.

This same principle holds for solar thermal, wind turbines, hydro electric systems and others. Fuel cells, for example, would qualify as well.
