I also am glad you started this group Rose. There is lots of information out there and most don't know about it to look for it.

I was told today at a "Green Fest" that the Obama tax credit for geo thermal was 30% of total cost with a $2000 cap and now they have taken the cap off and it supposedly will be in effect until 2016. It also applies to solar panels, solar water heaters, small wind energy systems and fuel cells. On an $18,000 geothermal unit that equates to $5400 dollar tax credit making a system able to pay for itself in less than 5 years. A tax credit reduces tax dollar for dollar which is better than a tax deduction. That is GREAT news!!!!

Good call on starting this group Rose, I am very interested in building green, I hate the thought of being a slave to the power companies, the have me cornered here at home , but not at our weekend cabin, I am very interested in small wind, I could generate power all week then use it on the weekends, I hope its cost effective, the money recoup times are decades some times.

I decided to post a website that lists many of the great resources I've found over the years on green building. The URL is: http://www.green4usa.org This is NOT a website full of shameless plugs for somebody's business (there are enough of those out there!) but simply a place where we can all share our success -- and maybe horror -- stories about green building! Thanks for looking.

Hi everyone, my name is Rose and I would like to invite you to join my group on Green Building. For many years I have researched various sources in alternative energy, and although for some the cost is prohibitive, I'm telling you folks... this is the wave of the future! (Remember how much high definition TV's were 5 or more years ago? Now it seems everyone has them. We'll see the same thing for photovoltaic panels and other systems soon). We "loggies" want to build our homes from natural materials because we all share a love of nature. We are the people who would rather spend a weekend at a quiet lake than at some noisy, crowded resort somewhere. We are the people who stop and listen when we hear a bird sing, or can sit for hours just watching the sun set. Let's build a future for our children and THEIR children that embraces clean, natural living. If you don't want to post here, feel free to contact me in person at rose@roseglenn.com. Thanks for coming!
