  • Wood Cutting for Winter - One week per month. Needs tracked forestry vehicle for effective work
  • Future - pelletizing and operating pelletizer stoves for heat. Far future: solar hydrogen may be evaluated, but pelletized biomass appears to be a good choice. By design, underground housing with solar gain should reduce energy needs by 80-90%.
