Low Ecological and economic footprint Low Ecological and economic footprint
Since I stay in India, I live,and work exclusively with solar power.
There are a lot of power cuts ,so you need anyway an alternative
Since LED can be used for lighting and small Notebooks, which not use a lot of power, available, its for me not a problem to live without power connection.
It was always a dream for me to live independent and generate the own power.
Over 10 years ago somebody gave me the book ¨Walden¨ from Henry Thoreau.
The woman was thinking it fits to me.
I am not that extreme, I still like watching F1 races on TV,but I don`t like to have one.
The biggest power sucker are the kitchen.
-Fridge- I drink no beer.
its possible to use solar,but most people don`t like, electricity is still cheap,practical if its there .
Get even subsidies from the community,what I don`t understand.
I have also no kitchen-
have all my meals outside because
- I am a bad cook
- I have a insect allergy,
- if you have food around, you have always ants
- its also nice to see people and read the newspaper .
Now since 4 month I have also an electric cycle which save me
every month a lot of money,despite the big effect on climate it have. (hi)
I discovered it have a big effect on people, which look like,oh not a bad idea,may be I could also switch.
Over 10 years ago I experimented already with electric bikes but
at that time the wheel motors are expensive.
Now,thanks to China there is a big movement,and good,payable material in the
Electric cycles are now a mass market article.
