  • Grid Connection An open letter to those on grid considering pursuing hydro power

    Many people contact us concerning the possibility of using a power source that is either connected to the commercial power grid or feeding power to a house that is. While this may be possible, it is not likely to make economic sense. Over 99% of our customers are off-grid and there are reasons for this. The question is then more like: ’Can I put in a small hydro system or should I spend ...

  • Take Your Bedroom Off the Grid

    In recent years there has been a growing interest in renewable energy. The problem is that many people cannot afford to implement a complete renewable energy system all at once. As interest grows and renewable energy equipment prices fall, people will not be ready to take advantage unless the industry and non-profits undertake serious public education. Redwood Alliance, an environmental ...
