The wife and I would like to move out of our apartment and into a small rural home in the next few years ("rural" as in 'a few miles out of town', not like '100 miles from a paved road in Canada'). With the ever rising costs of power (both electric and fossil fuel), we have an intrest in exploring alternative fuels (solar and wind turbine) that we would be able to use in conjunction with the established power-grid. We don't want be "off grid" and live with nothing more than a 5 cubic foot fridge and a 50watt light, we just want to lessen our heating and power bills every month. Can anybody suggest any good books or websites that cater to people just getting into alternate power? Most of the websites I'm finding are aimed towards cabin dwellers, and threy are pretty skim with alot of the basics (like "how to hook your house to your 12' turbine 101"). Thanks in advance.
