Sorry I?m not Joel, the names Colin although there is no shortage of characters in this neck of the woods

I don?t get much sailing in this days, sailing is a tropical thing the ocean up here is too cold so I stick to the lakes and a canoe these days.

I live on a lake and the wind we get here has me thinking of a wind generator, I just have to get my consumption under control first, I?m ashamed to say my electrical power consumption has gone from under 1KW a day in the years I lived of the grid to 10KW now! And from a coal fired station.

The main culprit is an electrical stove and hot water heater, the next project is to convert them to propane and a tankless water heater, it won?t save much money but it will sure cut down on CO2 emissions, after that it?s the fridge and freezer these typical modern efficient appliances are clearly criminal hardly 1 inch of insulation, on boats we wouldn't consider less than 3 inches and we were short on space!

Took the Accent on our weekly trip to town today 230KM and the gas gauge hardly moved, its going to take a while to go through a tank, you got to love it!
