Bio mass? a compost pile that generates heat? How would one proceed and where would it gi? I know about zilch on bii mass.. what's your idea? I like how you approach stuff.. how does one get there from where you are? Attach to current heat source or rework entire system?? Great day ahead.. I hope!

our lennox system kicked methane butt this year.. I've added up our entire methane use for the winter.. from 11/13/14 to 04/17/15 we consumed 30100 cu. ft . a total of 316 therms for a total cost of $472. our electric use was only up a small bit from last year.. thanks to the LED holiday lights.. and continued reductions in regular lighting.. I am very pleased.. not many around here got away with the entire winter with under 325 therms used.. plus I have an octogenarian here 24/7 which wants nothing less than 74* the same hours . I never turned it back once.. best J1

Just have the one large turbine now, although I did have a smaller one that I retired before. Its made from a washing machine motor, and plastic pipe blades and a lot of ingenuity and some sweat,blood and tears lol. Other than having to move it, it works well. If you wanted to try one out Menards has a Coleman kit they sell,that puts out DC, or you can build your own out of an old car alternator(older ones work best) bunch of utube vids on it.

The company sent out 1 of their best techs in March,who adjusted and checked over the systems,and it has made a Huge difference since..a really sharp guy,and he knew what he was doing. I've been in my local areas ear also about Elc. trucks and now going to talk to the school bus system as Joe mentioned...those 2 users could made a enormous difference switching to electric, but school buses are known for being behind the times,they just started adding seat belts ;(

I do! Love it that is ;) generated 24 today, all while using 6-8 a day normally so were building stock too :). And you were right about the power Co.,they were very much a pia to deal with, especially since I've added solar and wind!They even made me move my turban recently(3rd time,long story) but they can interfere,not stop me.Know you asked about the wind,an feel bad I haven't written you details,but have been very busy,for instance had 2 trees taken out 4 the solar,and I took down another 4,and just now got rid of the last of the branches!My lumberjack days are over though,espc. since I'm dealing w/some health stuff. Will write a big missive when I get a chance,and cc it to you and Joe. Good to hear from you guys,take care,Jay

Jimmy.. thats 20 mph to 100 mph... yes.. unsanctioned .. yes.. out in fields and open lands on smooth road.. spectators.. yes.. several.. all honda folks. In 20 seconds that Tl would take to the air.. I know the 3800 II engine well.. was in my 1998 Z34 Monte Carlo... Ill have to add up therms.. our only use months appear to be Feb. and March bills which would reflect January's and February's use.. I see the 203, another 100 or so since and about 15 before.. since 12/15/14 our meter read 348700.. it now reads 378900 .. My math says 30200 difference.. I dont know if it's a misprint, but the tesla 85s 0-60 time with awd is listed at 4.4 sec.

well if that's the case... then you probably used about the same amount of methane we used... 31,ooo cu ft or so.. the difference is , your avg. temps are lower.. and you probably didn't have it cranked to 74* for the entire period.. I really really really like that Tesla.. but the other day I took the o3 Tl-S out past Atco, Dragway.. it was Honda weekend.. my car was all shiny and sweet... then past the drags in the woods.. I smoked a couple of 20-100's... aaahhh that refreshing whine of lethal acceleration.. the new tranny pulls hard.. I replaced a motor mount too... (must have broke loose from torque).. no more clunking,seraching, this thing drops first into 6500 redline to 2nd like nothing... by third the thing is at almost 100... I'm so busy holding on and guiding.. can't tell ya how long it takes.. but it isn't long.. I LOVE that car!! should only be driven by an adult!! (know any??) yup.. clouds again... we have that drill down pretty good... joe

by Joeski1  Apr 13, 2015

silly me... that's aprox. 30,000 cu. ft of methane, my meter reads 4 numbers that change, plus two zeros... so only the tens of thousands are changing, not hundreds! doh!
