Clean Energy Discussion with EarthKind’s Ron Kamen



Ron Kamen, represents commercial organizations in clean energy projects that reduce energy costs and lower carbon footprints. He started the AWESome EarthKind podcast to generate hope & empower families with the tools to have a positive impact. For 3 decades, he’s worked with large and small businesses, governments & non-profits to identify achievable clean energy goals, create strategies, and deliver next-generation cost-saving climate solutions.

His career began with fixed-income seniors who had to choose to “heat or eat” due to astronomical utility cost increases. He came to realize that energy was also the major source of air, water & land pollution. (In my home state, energy is responsible for ~ 90% of greenhouse gases).

Climate disruption became personal in 1998 when an upstate NY tornado severely damaged his home and his family narrowly avoided catastrophe. Since then, climate-induced weather disasters have become commonplace, with Superstorms, massive flooding, droughts, wildfires, and polar vortices shutting down electric grids and threatening lives (even in “climate-change-denying” southern states).

EarthKind Energy Consulting brings this commitment, experience, and expertise to every project. Our successes include reductions in electricity, heating, & transportation costs; improved carbon footprints; outstanding financial returns; and zero cash down projects that provide immediate and long-term savings. There is nothing better than working with good people and organizations who aim to have a positive environmental impact – and realize that they can save money doing it.

As a public speaker, he also makes public presentations that educate, inspire, and empower both young and old to “Go Clean & Save Green”. The AWESome EarthKind podcast promotes that women and mankind – all EarthKind – are Forces of Nature. We are the 5th Element, and we are literally changing the work. We CAN make a real difference (and save ourselves money) when we focus on clean energy for our homes, businesses, communities, and nation.
