At RESTCo, we see ourselves as expertise for hire to help remote communities work through
issues they have related to energy, and design solutions to meet the local situation. In the
course of our work over the years, we have come across some common issues and truisms. We
present many of those here in the form of Top Ten lists for specific sub-categories.

and reduce greenhouse gases by two-thirds. As we increasingly turn to alternative technologies to
improve the fuel economy of our vehicles, we will see increasing benefits to our economy, our
environment, and our national security.
