Gray Wolf:
If you\'re thinking of building your own home in the Philippines, you probably have wondered how to make your home more eco-friendly, self sufficient or perhaps just more energy efficient.  Here are some resources to help you decide what would work for your home design and budget.  Many of these are home made designs while others are state of the art technology modified for individual or small community use.  There are also some links for information to help the non-techie understand how things work.

And another tip, if you want to know more about self sufficiency and renewable energy, get a copy of Mother Earth News..better yet, a subscription. It has many wonderful ideas... 8)

I personally thought about making the lighting in my girlfriends SariSari store and Carrendaria 12v and making up my own generation system using the year round creek that runs past the house. Just another thing to add to my list when I retire... ;D

Greg,

Good idea!† 12volt systems are relatively easy to find and simple to maintain by using a battery storage system.† There are small hydroelectric generators available.† I used to have a link, but lost it somewhere along the line of crashed computers.†  :D† Do a Google search for hydroelectric systems in the RP and see if you can find a good link to add to our list.† Many of us could take advantage of this knowledge, maybe even on a larger community effort.
