Molinos

Wind, there’s no escaping it in southern Spain. Travel along the major roads and coastlines and you will find molinos on the hillsides. They are elegant things, architectural almost. Spain is a leader in wind and solar energy, our house is energy self-sufficient using wind and solar energy. We live without power lines. turbines in distance1 10-10-14turbines in distance2 10-10-14turbines in distance3 10-10-14Click here to read our adventures with solar and wind power… turbines in distance4 10-10-14here to read about our solar-heated water supply… turbines in distance5 10-10-14… and here to read how we live without mains water, taking our water 100% from a spring. turbines in distance6 10-10-14turbines in distance7 10-10-145 to remember

    It was only a couple of days ago, that I was telling my Irishman about your home. I’m not sure how the convo started but I remembered your post from a few months back about having solar panels and I was really impressed with how you managed to go ‘off-grid’. Big round of applause, and a huge BRAVO! One day (when we’ve got our roof in order, because we have no land) we hope to follow suit! 😀
