Hi, Kris! Sorry I didn't respond - I didn't know I would get messages here!
We bought the wind turbine from a man in Wisconsin, and he had local help in installing it. It has become quite a sore subject, though. It hasn't been working since October, because we can't get him out here to fix it. Eric Cotton (bless his heart!) has taken on the job now, but it's been slow going this winter, with no breaks in the weather. We never really set out to be environmentally-minded folks, but we just have kind of worked our way into more and more areas - but there is always room to improve! Have a great day!
Wow -what a tricked out page! I have the story of stuff on my website too!
www.savemaumee.org! You have the world water monitoring story as your first...I LOVE THAT! I also am enjoying the ideasinfo for renewable energy, that is a very big problem that will eventually harm us all..one way or another, renewable and sustainable are going to be the only way to go, glad we are on the boat together! Let me know if you need anything, are you in Ft. Wayne?
If I flip the breaker on my water heater off in the morning and then turn it on when I return home from work, do I save on electricity or does it use the same amount (or more) to heat the tank back up?
