Operating the home consists of regular propane deliveries. There is a propane backup generator that kicks on to top off the battery. There is a large forklift battery that charges up pretty quickly. The wind turbines typically make up a good portion of the energy in Spring and Summer during windy seasons, but are currently in need of a little maintenance. The generator kicks on more in winter than any other time of year. The stove is propane, as is the central heating system. If you use the pellet stove more, then propane can be conserved.
The location is about 13 miles from the Columbia River Gorge
The roads are paved in the area up to 2 miles from the farm
