Ok you have a point there, but Before i installed this heating system I was spending $1200 bucks a year for the oil to heat this house, @ $239/gal.Today fuel is $3.89/gal. I spent about a $100 bucks for fuel to power the saw, splitter, tractor, and PU truck to cut this wood. You do the Math!. I am retired and enjoy cutting wood. I also cut it for two of my uncles, as they own most of the land that I cut dieing and damaged timber on within a half mile of our houses.
As for the solar and Wind units, In am a retired dealer/installer, and aquired the equipment at cost, less state and federal tax credits. The thermo hot water system is well on schedule to a 5yr payoff, and unfortunatly the Mariah wind turbine may never, since they went bankrupt this year. It is supplying about 11% of my electric consumption. The Skystreams that I installed are producing 4000=6500KWHs per year around here. The Hybrid PV/Wind systems are doubling that output.
If the power and all lifelines were to fail for all winter, I can survive very confortably, as our pantries and freezers are full from the garden also, plus I have a full tank of two year old heating oil to power my Yanmar diesel gen set.
Can you last that long????
Loren the Acg.
