Think big! Tell the story of how you could get your life to 90% clean energy consumption.

i arranged for Suncommon to come and assess my home for heat pump. They're great. Very thorough and fast. My obstacle is financing. Like many Vermonters, i have an old oil boiler that I'll need to replace. I need to save for this. And some other structural things like new gutters. It's a sequence dilemma. Do i concentrate on replacing the boiler first? A heat pump compliments this. it doesn't replace it. I investigated a multifuel biomass heatig system but now you're really talking big bucks and you have to get and store pellets or wood. I'm interested in what's been worked out for th new Vermod mobile homes and mean to follow up to see if such a system can work in a retrofit. Eager for help!
