Cooking is a technology that is still evolving for us. We are using some wood, both on rocket stoves and on an old-fashioned cook stove. We are also using biogas and a daylight drive solar electricity running hotplates and an electric oven. That electricity goes from the PV panels to the cooking devices, not though a battery.

Find some other people to work with, but be clear about your intentions and theirs. Make no untested assumptions about shared values. Focus on good design and conservation, not energy production. Talk to other people in the area who have tried to do anything similar. Environmental solutions are always local.

For me it's environmental. The Earth on which we live is sacred. It is under threat. This lifestyle allows people to have modern comforts with a small fraction of the ecological impact.
