As Reverend Phil; The ministry has given me a view of the world that is apart from my dependence on it for happiness. I.E., I am not caused by the world, but am its cause. It exists in my mind. This view is freeing and responsible at once. I can remake it by choosing to see differently. I have constructed solar water heating and PV, without any subsidy. It is fun, experimental, and rewarding to offer to others. Our home has a half acre garden, triple pane windows, and sun tubes for poorly lighted areas. I had the only solar thermal water heating system that was free of a pump, copper, or antifreeze in a below zero winter climate that has survived 20 below. It has its quirks tho, so it is being modified to use vertical tubes with internal heat pipes. The system uses a 600 gallon insulated tank for storage, and has a summer awning. My goal is fueless or extremely low backup fuel use heating and maybe cooling when developed. I have 15KW PV array on wooden poles with easy, locking arm seasonal adjustment. It provides free home electricity, vehicle power, and some extra to sell back. I am willing to share ideas and I do sell the solar thermal CVT systems in WI or nearby.
