I agree that I can defiantly learn to conserve a lot better and do with a lot less power hungry things that we have now. In fact I am trying to find some of the old school kitchen tools like hand cranked blenders and the like.
I don’t like the idea of having to Burn something though for heat or for cooking as that too releases harmful gasses into the atmosphere. But I understand that it at this point might be better then what I am doing now.
The goal we have though is to not just live green ourselves as the best we can but to come up with a way to create a eco village that has several modern things like computers etc but at the same time doing so in a reduced fashion and more conservative lifestyle. By doing this we can show the people who would not live the extreme eco village lifestyle that they too can reduce and conserve while keeping some of their comforts.
Basically I think I am just going to have to find a lot of land with a very strong flowing water source and go with Micro Hydro but I just wanted to see what other options are out there.

Times that by two compressors = 12000 watts.
Be reasonable. You can't destroy everything. Where would you sit? How would you read a tiny ad?
