I am new here as far as posting, but having been reading this site on and off. I was wondering what you are doing about preparing for the winter What are all of you doing to save on fuel and wood, so that we can stay warm and comfortable this winter? With the steep price increases for these I am worried. Unfortuneately I am still stuck on the grid, want to get off it but do not have the money to do so. I would love windpower or solar energy so I can be independant of the grid. Unfortunately I have some medical problems and disabilities that require electric power, otherwise I would do withouit electicity. What do you who are on a limited income do in this front?
