Yes, my husband say they are brown not very green.. Thet are not recyclable and are extremely expensive to replace. He has helped people put them In he is an electrician, many people think they are helping, finding out they spend more then they are worth. (Just his opinion)

I'm shopping around for some off grid properties and I know I'm going to be setting up solar and wind for power, and will be using solar for heat and hot water. Geothermal just seems to be a large investment. One I can't afford, though I'd love to have it.

Katie Cordrey wrote an article on the RidgeBlade a ridgeline wind turbine for Trendhunter. This unit flows seamlessly with the roof of one's home. I hope it can becme avail for residental use soon. I bet it won't be cheap at first, but oh man, if they can produce cheaply it would be a huge win for those of us who want to be more independant of the grid.

My plan is to start small and keep adding to cover as much of our needs as possible.

Lots of options but money is still an issue for most people.

It's always great to review these alternatives to "Big Energy" but the hardest time I have is justifying the tremendous initial cost of an alternative energy system of any significant size. The cost of retrofitting is staggering and the time it takes to recoup the investment is often longer than the average person will own their current home. Still, there are lots of small things we can do to decrease our energy consumption and rethink our "convenient" modern life.

I like the idea of solar power too but it's sooooo expensive. We use wood burning stoves to heat some places. Cheap but messy.

I like the idea of solar power, but was it the footprint of the batteries that have to be replaced every two-three years?
