Eco-friendly home
Using solar wind and Geo-thermal energy
Solar and wind for electricity
and Geo-Thermal for heating and cooling
Home is earth covered 75-85%
Making it well insulated and suitable for hot Texas summers feel free to ask questions I'll try and answer them all

<p>Your video is not working, is it available on youtube or could you fix it here please, I am very interested in the idea and want to see your pictures or video</p>
rhapton, when I try your video I get: &quot;This video does not exist&quot;. Is it just me or is there a missing video?
There way more to this project than I could ever fit into a one time slot would allow <br>home features include but not limited to:. <br> <br>Grid-Tied power <br>Off-grid power <br>solar array (Panels built myself) <br>wind generators(built myself) <br>geo-thermal heating and cooling <br>methane digester(waste water and cow manure) <br>12vdc lighting system <br>120vac lighting system <br>grid tied electrical panel <br>off-grid electrical panel <br>switch gear for on/off grid application <br>solar water heater <br>Recycled auto tires fill w/gravel and sand(used in backfill drainage area against structure) <br>Bio-garden(fertilized and watered from digester after methane production) <br>not mention composting for garden, <br>and since the site of the home is on a working cattle ranch, animal waste, and farming by-products are constantly being introduced into the equation for bio-fuels and new products
As you can tell I'm not much of public speaking or presentations as I stumbled all over this one
