HOUSE LOADS

Just a reminder, that by far the most cheap and effective tools in the pursuit of any sustainable energy system are Conservation and Energy Efficiency . Remember that what we want is not electricity itself, but the things electricity provides (eg light or refrigeration). Getting things done with the least waste should be the first step in any plan.

Luckily for us, our house was already fitted out with efficient devices, since it has been off-the-grid for 20 years. So we were able to be righteous about energy efficiency while still putting all our efforts into the way-cool hydrogen fuel cell project.

The following links are good sources for info on energy-efficient design and appliances.
