Can going green make you wealthy beyond belief? Well, it can if you are Al Gore. The former US Vice President is all set to get richer by the millions as he went green, investing in green energy companies. Last year his venture capital firm loaned Silver Spring Networks $75m to create energy-sustaining technology.
The Energy Department, in fact, announced a staggering $3.4 billion investment for the smart grid, and over $560 million of the total amount was bagged by utilities having contracts with Silver Spring. So the moral of this story is, put your money where your mouth is and earn yourself a diamond-encrusted pie!
