How to make money saving the environment with your web site

Wouldn’t it be great if you could help clean up the environment, reduce global warming, and make a lot of money doing it? Well, you can, it’s easy, and in a few pages of reading I’m going to show you how to do it.

Many web sites make money with affiliate ads promoting products. When someone clicks on the ad and a sale is made the referrer gets a commission for bring the customer in to make the sale. All you need to do is find a great product that pays a good commission and you start making money.

That great product is SolarCity solar electric systems. People sign up to get solar electric and you get a $250 commission for every sale made. The customer saves money and more electricity is made in a clean way reducing the amount of carbon added to the environment. Every kilowatt hour (KWH) of energy produced by solar panels is a KWH of coal or natural gas not burned to make electricity.

SolarCity has what the call their Ambassador Program and you can sign up to be a SolarCity ambassador. Then they create a spacial link to their web site with your signup code in it. When someone signs up and gets a system – you get a check.

Here’s a SolarCity video on how it works in detail.

But – there’s even more. SolarCity has a multi-level marketing plan. If you sign up another SolarCity Ambassador then every sale they make they get $250 like you. But you get $100 extra for every one of their sales. So when your ambassador succeeds you succeed too. And you get commissions to about 6 levels down the tree, each being smaller of course.

The structure is similar to what Amway offers. You make money from downline sales but ultimately it is all funded by real people getting real solar collectors on their roof. And every time that happens the environment gets a little cleaner and real families save money on their power bill. What’s great about it is everyone is a winner, except for some people in the fossil fuel industry who eventually would be out of work once those energy sources run out. It’s even good for the utility companies because it saves them having to build now power plants as more people start generating clean power into the grid locally.

I personally am one of those real people. I got a SolarCity system for my house and I love it. If you are a homeowner you can get a system for your house and save money too switching from dirty power to clean power. But you don’t have to buy one yourself to sell it. All you have to do is sign up and put the link on your web site. You might be a renter or you might live in a place that SolarCity doesn’t yet service. No problem. If you have a blog – especially an environmental blog – you can make money getting people who can get a system.

What’s great about this product is that the home owner doesn’t have to come up with a lot of money to buy the system. You can finance it through them or you can do what I did – just by the electricity.

SolarCity came out and installed it on my house and I didn’t have to pay a dime. I didn’t even have to pay for the building permits. Literally I paid nothing. It wasn’t until after the system was turned on that I got a bill and it was smaller than my PG&E bill. But I’m actually money ahead because I made a referral and I got a check for $250 from SolarCity before my first bill from them came in. So I’m effectively getting free electricity and making money from it. It just doesn’t get any better than that!
