the sun provides abundant free energy

While the capture and leveraging of the sun’s power does involve costs,there is no such thing as “peak sun”…at least not in the lifetime of anyone reading this website.  Therefore anywhere we can utilize the Sun’s energy instead of fossil fuel energy is a win for us and a win for the environment.  Implementing solar harvesting technologies in your lifestyle will build greater resiliency and self sufficiency, as well as insulating you from power outages caused by weather, accidental digging, or infrastructure failure.  Harvesting the sun’s energy doesn’t have to include expensive solar panels and other PV components.  A solar oven or distiller utilizing scrap lumber, the proper application of shade on your annual garden, transplanting evergreen trees–allof these things can be done for little or no money armed with the right information.
