Alternative Energy Sources
Maarten met with R.B. Fitch to talk about the possibility of installing a wind turbine (GreenSky vertical wind turbine, see http://www.greensky-windsystems.com/). R.B. showed some interest in considering the idea. He also showed considerable interest in solar electricity generation for the Inn as well as for future houses in Fearrington.
There are now (January 2015) 12 homes in Fearrington Village with solar panels.
An interesting video of Jon Darling’s son Seth’s involvement in solar developments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZyRn4Nml2A&feature=youtu.be
