Homesteading, Organic Gardening, How to Farm, Preparedness, Self-Reliance
By no means do I profess to be an expert when it comes to agriculture - I've still got a lot to learn. When it comes to energy, however, I'd say I know a thing or two.
As a member of the energy industry for years, it's been my job to know every little nook and cranny of the field. Now, as a farming hobbyist, I've made it a point to transition what I know from my profession into the agrarian world. And my biggest point of concern thus far has been my needless expenditures.
From planting my first seed to the completion of my first harvest, I wasted far, far too much energy. Running motors, treating crops, leaving on the lights - it seems like every corner of the process had me using more power than I would've liked. Of course, a lot of that is on me. I have to look for ways to cut back on my own; just from speaking to a few neighbors, I've already found a few low voltage solutions to some of my issues.
But what kind of energy specialist would I be without looking for a solution from deeper within the industry? I'm thinking it might be time for me to look for a different supplier, or at the very least look into what sorts of green energy plans I have available. I might even look into getting a solar array? I think that could actually be a huge help.
What have you guys done to Eco-proof your farms? Any advice would be appreciated.
