Description: Jan and Ron Bever operate their house, barn and sugar shack entirely off the grid. They use two Southwest Windpower microturbines that generate 400 watts each and six 120 watt solar panels, along with 12 Trojan T-105 batteries to store the power. Jan and Ron installed all the systems themselves with the help of their neighbors. They are planning to harvest 100 gallons of syrup next season from their 15 acre sustainably managed sugar bush. Jan promises you don’t need a lot of money to get started in renewable energy. If you are looking for a do-it-yourself, affordable approach to renewable energy, come meet Jan and Ron!
