I'm intensely interested in micro-grids, particularly in solar energy at the residential and small-business scale. I'm also interested in using diverse plantings to increase food and energy resilience. I volunteer with community permaculture groups and with groups devoted to making efficiency legal with new code directions. ReCode is one of the groups concerned with this, as is City Repair and DePave. I frequently post on Renewable Energy World as well. I appreciate the diversity of opinion that can be found there and on Seeking Alpha. I visit truthout frequently as well. I don't use my real name on truthout. Some folks there do not seem to appreciate my feedback, notwithstanding the name of the site.
