    some great replies here fella's.....thanks a ton for your opinions....we are in our 30's and plan on never moving again.....this is going to be our last move...we are both entrenched in our jobs locally, neither of us have aspirations of moving away when we retire......unless its just for the winter..lol.....but from what I am reading, the US and Ohio govt has rebates for people who purchase solar for their home.....I am going to keep looking into that option...as well as geothermal.

    A question about geothermal.....I have not looked into it much...but from what I gather, its not a energy source, correct? its a way of heating and cooling your water and home, correct? Basically what I am saying is, can I run fridge or TV from geothermal? I dont think I can, but I could be wrong.....

    great responses everyone....I am all for all ideas...I will also update you all about the costs and what we choose...hopefully it wont be a headache.

    Yes it is a way to heat and cool your home and water, it is expensive but the energy savings is great. I agree with Sandy, spend extra on windows and insulation. It is worth it, you don't even have to be a "greenie" to appreciate energy savings in terms of dollars.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Nation's first wind-powered brewery. I'll be checking it out this summer.

    Yep. I have a few friends who have built new homes over the last several years and taken that route.... and they are glad they did.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
