"Great study, I will pass along to my son."

Leo Klisch commented on Anna Jursik's blog post Affordably Net-Zero
""The famous rationale for going to high performance was, if you beef up your envelope enough you can change or reduce the expense needed for your HVAC system. We’re not finding this in Minnesota. In the summer, dehumidification is…"

Leo Klisch commented on Elisa Wood's blog post Microgrid for Neighborhoods: How Soon?
"I would like to see a similar pilot project at my local electric cooperative in central Minnesota. So thanks for the the information."

Leo Klisch replied to Jose Macho's discussion Google Nest Acquisition- Where the Home Energy Market is Going
"When and if we have far more variable renewable power available and therefore grid operators need much more demand/response opportunity via TOU power pricing and thermal and electrical storage via car batteries,hot water, ice,etc., then I will need…"

Leo Klisch commented on Anna Jursik's blog post Electric Thermal Storage vs. Heat Pump Water Heaters
"Dennis, I guess a high efficiency gas heater would mean less CO2 than electric resistance from coal and maybe even natural gas power unless a CCNG plant. Hard to say how expensive reliable CCS will be. The coal plant is located in central North…"

Leo Klisch commented on Christopher Cadwell's blog post Super Efficient HVAC is Easy
"The only downside I can see is setting to a lower temperature and do not program a return time because your not sure or don't have a progammable. On returning it will take longer to reach higher temperature. Lee "

Leo Klisch replied to Brian Knight's discussion Cost Effective Passive Solar Design
"The Canadian manufactures are the best I found. They are pulltruded fiber glass from Fibretech in Ontario. Check there web site for specs. Accurate Dorwin of Winnipeg was my second choice.Well radiant will certainly work with geo. But be aware of…"

Leo Klisch replied to Brian Knight's discussion Cost Effective Passive Solar Design
"Overall the article raises the right issues and addresses them well. Some other points: I've found on my ICF passive solar house in central Minnesota after four heating seasons that high efficiency triple glazed windows are the best money…"

Leo Klisch replied to Chris Kaiser's discussion In optimal installations for both, does wind ever beat solar? in the group Renewable Energy
"I agree Mark. My wild guess on doubling PV output has no place in a serious discussion like this. That's how misinformation gets its start."
Apr 6, 2011
Leo Klisch replied to Chris Kaiser's discussion In optimal installations for both, does wind ever beat solar? in the group Renewable Energy
"Remember the PV system was tracking the sun daily and seasonally which for residential roof top installations would be difficult if not impractical. It appears that PV comes out better with tracking unless the residence has an above average wind…"

Leo Klisch replied to Chris Kaiser's discussion In optimal installations for both, does wind ever beat solar? in the group Renewable Energy
"At a Minnesota Energy Conference I met a wind and PV solar installer. He sells and installs both Southwest wind systems and Sunpower PV(one of the highest efficiencies in the industry) systems. He monitored both a 2.4 kW wind turbine and a 4.14 kW…"

Leo Klisch replied to Chris Kaiser's discussion In optimal installations for both, does wind ever beat solar? in the group Renewable Energy
"It's a reasonable start anyway. However the 35 foot tower is no where near high enough, especially with the tall trees in the photo. 90 ft would be a minimum height and mite double the average wind speed to get eight times the kwh but 110 would…"

Leo Klisch commented on Nathan Christensen's blog post The Next Big Leap
"The idea of geothermal seasonal heat storage has been played with in Europe and the US for sometime now. I found a 60 unit single family housing development in Alberta Canada that installed a system that they feel will provide 90% of space heating…"
