Rain water harvesting
Rainwater harvesting is the simple act of
collecting water run-off from roofs. This
practice dates back to the beginning of
civilization.
Let's try again with modern
technology.
Grey water recycling
Grey water recycling involves
the collection, filtration, UV
treatment, and re-use of waste
water from Showers, tubs, sinks,
lavatories, dishwashers, and
laundry machines.

This recycled water can be used
for utility needs, landscaping, and
toilet flushing (up to 40% of
domestic annual water use). If an
additional UV filter is added, it is
potable again.
GET OFF THE GRID...

Off-grid living & working
Off-grid - a familiar term, but how does it work, and what are your options?
A variety of modern technology based systems exist that drastically increase the self reliance of buildings.
Water, power, heating, cooling, and waste management needs can all be serviced with off-grid technology.
Lower your utility bill, increase your self reliance, and significantly reduce your impact on the environment.

What are the costs of being off-grid?
Most off-grid systems are surprisingly affordable. It is also important to note that off-grid systems pay themselves back over time.
Depending on utility rates in your area, you may re-coup your investment within a few years. When amortized into a 30 year mortgage,
off-grid systems have only a minor impact on your monthly mortgage installment.
OFF-GRID SYSTEMS TYPES...

Reviving "forgotten technology" - Water supply, heating, lighting, and cooling systems invented by our ancestors out of necessity, and re-instated in an
improved fashion in the present with the aid of modern technology...

Solar electric & solar
thermal panels
Wind turbines
Generate power & heat water
with the free energy of the sun
and wind.
Building automation systems
A home that not only monitors
energy & water use, but also resource
generation, perceived need, and
allocation.

Smart buildings act very much like the
human body. They preserve & store
energy, and water, and self regulate
temperature based on perceived
(programmed) need parameters.

Modern building automation systems
can accomplish a fully autonomous
self regulating building with optimal,
and most efficient use & storage of its
own required resources.
Roman heated floor in ancient Rome
Latin - "Hypocaustum"
Modern radiant floor - Solar thermal
panels heat water which is stored in
an insulated tank. An electric pump
powered by solar electric panels
moves the hot water around and
heats your home.
Thermal mass at work - fire was built
at an opening into the under floor
area. The hot air heated up the heavy
stone floors, which radiated heat into
the living area throughout the night.
Heated (radiant) floors - Then and now
In Roman times, people built raised thick stone floors, and built a hot fire right outside the
crawl space. Hot air would circulate underneath the floor, and even into brick vertical channels
to upper level floor spaces. The first 'heated floor system' is close to 1,500 years old.
