I just dropped the price of
the permaculture playing cards
for a wee bit.

 

 

uses include:
- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading
- find the needle
- find the 26 hidden names

Our new house plans are being drawn and we want to include solar energy into the building process.
Because this is a new endeavor, and so many resources exist, where do we start?

Being self starters, we will utilize any direction given.

Excited to be part of Permies,

ps, can hardly wait for the DVDs on wood burning stoves.

I suggest finding a local solar energy installer. When choosing a solar installer you should use the same methods that you would use when choosing a builder, doctor, plumber, etc., check their experience and references. A local installer will be familiar with your specific climate and what type of systems work best in your area. Then get a second opinion.

Check the yellow pages. Go to your local energy fair. Check with your local or state chapter of the American Solar Energy Society and/or the Solar Energy Industries Association.

Bob,

Thank you, so much, for this information.

This is exciting to have direction. Being engaged in searching for more earth friendly building designs/systems is fascinating, making the whole process of building a home, more meaningful.

Have a blessed day,

Joleen Barce
