Re: anyone here into the solar and wind energy craze?
If I were to build my dream home I would really consider solar power. It is expensive and takes years to recoup the original investment, but then again I wouldn't be looking to move out of my dream home after a couple of years. The idea of selling energy back to the grid also would entice me.
But in general solar is just too expensive to be practical. Geothermal does seem to be the newest idea to come about. I don't really know if its the same thing or similar but I know radiant heat is becoming a popular idea in some places. It makes sense to me and seems practical as well.
