I think it's interesting the the "President from Texas" has a pretty energy efficient home on his Texas ranch, while Al Gore with his huge home is paying others to be green for him.

Steve,

Got links for those? I'd be interested to see what our President is doing. That would be very cool if he's really done something actively to reduce power consumption.

Ah yes, Colorado - mountains, fresh air, sunshine, open plains, and millions of cows standing around in vast feed lots waiting to be turned into dinner. Windmills? Geothermal? Hydro? Wood fuel??? How about less meat? No, this is not a vegan rant. This very interesting article will help explain: "The Oil We Eat" - http://www.harpers.org/archive/2004/02/0079915.

At the bottom of the topic it said:

A slight glitch here; I was logged in, so obviously there was at least one member viewing!

The geothermal option is now being implemented widely over here in The Netherlands. Almost any application for a building permit for new offices is accompanied by an application for a permit to pump up and pump back water out of and into the ground. Even the larger private houses start to use it. It's definetely paying off and I can remember my uncle in Austria using the technology for his floor heating almost twenty(!) years ago.



The menure option definetely needs a closed environment like a tank or a container. Or you'd have to grow A LOT of lavender around it to compensate for the rich.....perfume...Smile

Not sure I can do anything about the perfume. It tends to permeate the air with six horses nearby Sad

Thanks for the suggestions and I'll keep investigating options. If I ever get my shop built, geothermal is certainly high on my list.
