Saving on electricity?

Electricity is the foundation of modern living.  We use it to heat, cook, light, and power devices such as phones, computers, and TV's, toasters, coffee pots, etc.  Some people are powering yard equipment like lawn mowers, weed whackers, landscape lighting, decorative fountains, hot tubs, swimming pools, and even PEV automobiles today with electricity.  Now some of you may be using natural gas to cook, run your clothes dryer, water heater, and furnace, but even these devices today usually have electronic ignition, electric powered blowers, and electrically power

solar systems

Does anyone have any experience with in home solar systems in southern alberta?

I've got my food and home heating solutions in place but if the power were to be out for an extended period of time I don't know what I'd do.

Building a Sustainable Home/Property

Hi Everyone,

I've been doing research on building a "Farmhouse" if I can find the right land and wanted to pass along a website that does modular construction in a factory but is really attractive construction and you get price certainty due to no unexpected cost overruns at least with the stick built home. They also have a development that they built in VT that is a little sustainable community. 8 homes with shared area as well as your own private area and private garden to grow food and of course solar powered.

How rooftop solar can prevent the apocalypse

Here's an article explaining the dangers of a takedown of the US electrical grid and how a distributed national network of rooftop solar installations would offer one of the best defenses against such a dire scenario. The article also details the major obstacles to such a sound idea: politics, and power plays by major utilities:

Buffett dumps Exxon-Mobil

I haven't seen this discussed yet.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-02-17/berkshire-cuts-exxon-m...

Is seems counter to his "buy solid dividend companies and hold" policy.

Is he changing his view on energy or is he just seeing a top and planning to dive back in at some future bottom?  Any thoughts?
