    heating and solar DHW system.  Electric thermal storage system for heat, and a flat plate roof collector for DHW. The latter worked only in the summer and an electric boost heater was added on when there were two teenagers here.

    I have mostly-now installed a propane-fired heating system for heat. I looked into doing PV on the roof, but same problem with large trees ringing the S exposure. I can't see having to spend my own $$ removing 20-30 big trees worth the not-snow time for PV.

    Thinking about a house-sized wind turbine, at least that could run all year.
