How We Went Post-Carbon

How We Went Post-Carbon

One of our major goals is to prototype a post-carbon lifestyle to demonstrate that it is not only viable and within reach but also comfortable, easy and desirable. When we purchased the house, it had a gas furnace, hot water tank and cook top and we drove an internal combustion engine car. Going post carbon effectively means eliminating fossil fuels in all aspects of life, so switching everything over to electric is the crucial task. This is made considerably easier in BC where almost all the grid power comes from hydro energy, which is both (nearly) GHG free and (relatively) inexpensive.
