Testimonials: Why Readers Love CleanTechnica

We asked our readers how they’ve been impacted by reading CleanTechnica over the years. Here’s what they told us:

  • C.T. Keeps me up to date on what’s coming and who’s doing it. Over the years I’ve been guided by your research and coverage, for instance, before buying my first E-car, a Volt in 2016, loved it, now I drive a 2018 Volt. We were early adopters of solar panels, then added our household back up batteries.
  • To date, as a result of my experience with Cleantechnica, my family has switched to rooftop solar and BEVs, negating our net electric consumption and all our gasoline purchases. HVAC is next up to shed fossil gas consumption.
  • I read CleanTechnica every day and I find it wonderful. In a world where we have some tough challenges, it is a relief to read about ideas, projects and positive changes that can all be a part in the much needed green transition. You have a team of good writers with a healthy critical view combined with deep knowledge in their domaine. You have been an inspiration for me and I have used it by building a hempcrete house. It is supposed to have a functional life of more than 200 years. Each m3 of hempcrete Capture about 100 kg of CO2, instead of releasing CO2 which is the normal situation when building conventionally. Much better than capture CO2 and pump it into oil wells. Thank you for being there with inspirational articles and being a rocky island of hope in a sea of doom and gloom
  • CleanTechnica has helped me stay sane, develop new thinking, educate and inform others, keep up to speed on new developments, campaign and take action on my own life and anywhere else that I can influence. In my own life I have bought an EV, installed electric radiators, stopped burning any oil, gas, or coal (did that in any case), stopped flying until EV planes take off and told my friends what to do also. In my work life I have got my head around the politics, business strategies and human decision making needed for our own small country (UK) to shift gear. And used that to shout as loud as possible in every aspect of the democratic system, company world and communications networks to affect change. The transition off oil is inevitable. We are now in the Climate Economy. And every credible journalist on the planet needs to be thinking about their sector from that perspective. ONLY Cleantechnica does that…in the English Language for me to understand. Therefore, it is THE only source of news worth reading, in my opinion. China hopefully has its own journalists. Or needs them. And Arabia and Africa too. Well done for leading the way!
  • You provide the education we all desperately need to spread the word on what’s needed to transition to a sustainable Earth. How to correct the misinformation Trolls and who’s behind the FUD. Hey you even helped me pick an e-bike. So thank you.
  • Through reading of CleanTechnica I became much more knowledgeable about EVs, and specifically the work being done at Tesla. I put in an early reservation for the Model 3 and got mine in July of 2018. It has been one of my best decisions! A truly groundbreaking product! Thanks, CleanTechnica, for educating me on EVs and other climate change-beating technologies and developments!
  • My wife and I are in the lucky position to be building a house. We are building an all-electric and hopefully net-zero home thanks much in part to what we have learned by reading CleanTechnica.
  • I have been on a mission to decarbonize our house, installed solar pv, heat pumps, induction stove. Still have a way to go but most of the idea that this would be possible came from reading CleanTechnica.
  • I just purchased an electric bicycle and I absolutely love it! I wish I could tell everyone how friggin fun it is. I purchased it to help motivate me to not use my truck for nearby trips and actually have fun while I do them. On my first ride I literally said out loud (to no one) “This is so much fun!!”
  • When our central air conditioner stopped working, we decided it was time to upgrade our heating system as well since it was almost 30 years old. We went with a ducted heat pump and installed a new heat pump water heater. We no longer had to start the house heat to have enough hot water to take a shower. Also, when home heating oil went over $5/gallon, I was smiling big.
  • [CleanTechnica] motivated us to install four free EV chargers at our office parking lot.
  • Seeing all the good news about electric car adoption around the world inspired me to buy one for my family in Reno, NV. We have Tesla solar power in ours, are planning on switching our furnace to a heat pump, and support green energy initiatives nationwide, while also donating to the Clean Air Task Force.
  • We have been electrifying our lives, with EVs, rooftop solar, a heat pump water heater, etc. We walk the walk so that we can advocate for climate solutions with our friends, family, local government, and our church. And our church now has solar as well!
  • Helped start a large community garden at a local college with a solar powered water collection system.
  • I always read the CleanTechnica articles for a more in-depth look at emerging developments. Your organization helps me to discern the needed trends for investing and facility upgrades.
  • I just landed my first job in renewables and am thrilled to be helping to change the world with a like-minded team!cleantech revolution
  • Because of CleanTechnica I joined a local electric vehicle club and started going to their events. Through them, I have made new friends and become involved in other words local climate groups.
  • I taught a university class: Global Sustainable Energy, online for 15 years. Each week had a current event assignment. I used CleanTechnica as a source for these assignments more times than I could count. It was the student’s favorite weekly task. Keep up the good work!
  • I cited CleanTechnica articles for three years in my radio show. I enjoy the intelligent forum responders, especially in that they don’t let bots and FUD prevail.
  • Your articles really help me to fight FUD locally and influence companies!
  • [CleanTechnica] helps me learn details about clean energy incentives, industry progress and techniques of smaller industry players. I gain insight into the broadening range of clean energy matters.
  • We purchased an EV (Tesla) in 2019 and then added solar panels in 2020 so we could drive on sunshine, partly due to the influence of CleanTechnica.
  • I drive our company’s first EV in our fleet!
  • CleanTechnica helps me as I learn about transitioning to clean energy in my home and in my advocacy as a volunteer for electric transportation. I can also rely on what I learn here when global warming comes up in conversation.
  • My team at UC Davis identifies opportunities to save energy (either through conservation or efficiency) and is funded by the energy savings we achieve. It’s a win-win for the university and a great incentive for us to be excited to work every day.
  • This site is a great way to stay informed of developments across a range of technologies that are helping to reduce our environmental impacts! Thanks for the great work that you do!
  • I installed solar panels about six years ago and they’re saving me thousands every year. Have been preaching to anyone who listens about the pros of green energy both for the pocket and planet.
  • CleanTechnica helps me have informed conversations about solar power, EVs, battery backups, and various other subjects in the realm of renewable energy resources.
  • It’s like a daily vitamin. Can’t live without it!
