What would you find if you traced the wires from your light switch to their energy source? Mountaintop removal, childhood asthma, or hope? Follow filmmaker Jeff Barrie as he searches America’s cities, towns and countryside for solutions to the great energy problems of our day.

Along the way, you’ll meet power companies, schools, businesses and everyday Americans finding ways to meet our energy needs using conservation and green power. Find out how Jeff and his wife Heather cut their energy bills in half and use the savings to buy green power.

Best of all, Kilowatt Ours will teach you how to dramatically reduce your own energy bill and improve the environment at the same time.

Quite a few problems with this documentary, too numerous to list here. Solar panels don't grow on trees, they come from fossil fueled factories in the Far East.

The big oil, coal, energy corporations must stop thinking only about their bottom line and stop suppressing the free energy technologies that existed thousands of years ago before our civilization came to be. Tesla's work was suppressed by the elite because they could not put a meter on his technology to force people to pay. There are alternatives to electricity which is archaic, dangerous and messy. The earth, atmosphere and the surrounding solar system have the potential to meet all our energy needs without waste and destruction.

I learned about mountain top removal for the first time. How sickening and terrifying to live next to a giant disaster area and what sounds like a war zone. I'm making some changes and looking into asking my landlord about some updated large appliances...even if I have to pitch in some of the cost. Thank you for this documentary. Well done.
