What we do
Slow Boiling Frogs is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the energy needs of non-profits together with the equipment and installation skills of the alternative energy industry
(To set the record straight, this is not a seafood recipe site. The term Slow Boiling Frogs is a metaphor for the idea that change needs to be gradual to be accepted)

Since 2011, donations to Slow Boiling Frogs have saved the generation of XX kilowatt hours of energy which has helped prevent the xreation of more than: X pounds of CO2! That's like: Y cars off the road for a day or Z households turning off their lights for a day (more...)

Our basic mission will be to work with AE installers and businesses that sell AE hardware/services in the Central Texas area and elsewhere to seek donated equipment and supplies, perhaps even the installation time in much the same way that Habitat for Humanity brings together materials and craftsmen to build houses at no direct cost to the homeowner. The executive director will be the only full-time employee of SBF at first. SBF will not compete with commercial installers or sellers of AE systems. We will broker supply and need, working to make connections between the installers and the target NPOs. We will also provide seminars, webinars, one-pager summaries of various applicable AE topics in an effort to educate other NPOs in the Central Texas region.
Alternative energy solutions that will be brokered include off-the-shelf concentrating thermal solar arrays, standard photovoltaic (PV) systems, and simple solar hot water heaters.
Per WikiPedia the boiling frog story is generally told in a metaphorical context, with the upshot being that people should make themselves aware of gradual change lest they suffer eventual undesirable consequences. This may be in support of a slippery slope argument. It is also used in business to illustrate the idea that change needs to be gradual to be accepted. The expression "boiling frog syndrome" is sometimes used as shorthand for the metaphor.
The story has been retold many times and used to illustrate many different points. It has been used to warn about diverse phenomena, for example: in 1960 about sympathy towards the Soviet Union during the Cold War; in 1980 about the impending collapse of civilization anticipated by survivalists; in the 1990s about inaction in response to climate change and staying in abusive relationships. It has also been used by libertarians to warn about slow erosion of civil rights.
