Energy production in Homer is nearly 95% natural gas if you are on the grid getting your power from our local energy cooperative, Homer Electric Association.  There are, of course, other options. There are homes in town that are grid intertied with other home energy production options like solar or wind.  Some use alternatives for heating water or their home with solar thermal or geothermal. There are also many who live off the grid completely. Even those who have wood heat often utilize methods that increase the efficiency of burning to make it less work and more consistent (think rocket mass heaters).

There are plenty of places to brag about in Homer. Do you know someone who has innovative energy systems in their home?  Or maybe you have one?  Post the story here!

Live thoughtfully.
