Hi all. I have just returned from a great voyage to New Mexico where I spent time at the Earthships Compound outside of Taos.

I was really encouraged by their off-grid electrical and water systems that have been developed by Mike Reynolds and his team in Taos. Their systems can be transferable particularly to communities in need that don't have access to the "grid" and are struggling to find affordable and realistic solutions to energy and water needs.

I was particularly thrilled to learn about the tecnical features of their off-grid solar array and wastewater treatment as it relates to the EcoCenter.

Most inspiring!
