I live lighter than almost anyone I know, other than those that live with no power other than self generated power. I do have running water and flush toilets, electricity and heat from the woodstove. My home site is totally not situated where solar power would be an option. I live in a little home, live small and love it.
I'm in Washington Electric CoOp's service area. While the vast majority of power we produce is green, they sell the carbon credits to big polluters! Okay it may keep our rates down, but we want to know the good decisions we've made over the years are benefiting us, not some energy hog.
This photo is my little cottage.
