solar electricity, a dish towel lady and a free-range chicken
I have talked about our solar run shop, but don't think you have seen the array. My husband Neil and I both grew up, steeped in the dream of solar energy. So about 7 years ago, after we had bought and paid for all the parts, we installed the system and went live. It is AWESOME turning the power of our sun into usable energy! There is no magic bullet to alternative energy; it is a series of many small moves, choices and lifestyle changes. You can start small by using the clothesline and air drying your hair. We will all still need some fossil fuels for the foreseeable future, but every little bit helps! And yes that is a free range chicken there, too!
