Hi, I am moving soon and i am wanting to use oil lamps at night for lighting to cut down on electricity, but i dont want to use paraffin oil or kerosine for the lamps. I am wondering what are the other options, if there are any? I am also wondering if there is any way to live in an apartment and use solar power? We are moving back to North Carolina and i am wondering what other options we can use for heating to not use much electricity? any ideas would be great, Thanks!
