Harvesting the energies of sun, water, wind and using them in sustainable ways makes sense in terms of climate change, peak oil, and personal resiliency. How do you know which are right for your property?
Analysing your current energy systems, your energy use and the efficiency of your home is a good place to start. We’ll discuss the latest in solar energy capture and storage. Also solar ovens, solar hot water, wind, micro hydro and wood. Which one (s) would be best for your property and lifestyle? We’ll also learn about transportation alternatives like electric cars and bikes. You’ll see alternate technologies like rocket stoves and solar dehydrators. In the afternoon, we’ll visit an off the grid property entirely powered by a stream water.
