Thank you for the welcome.  I came across Home Energy Pros this morning looking for more information on Michael Blasnik's work.  Wow, what a find!

I'm looking forward to engaging this amazing community of people.

Thanks, Diane. It's good to feel welcome. FYI- I chose the term "energy savers" as a part of my company name after exploring the DOE "energy savers" page on the website. I love promoting energy efficiency, however, it is frustrating at times how hard it is to get the American public interested and involved. Still, the cause is worth the effort. Hope you have a great weekend.

Right on Diane!

Intro: my talents are in autonomous architecture and the product lines to support that concept as a comprehensive designer, residential to industrial systems. Most recent interest is a garage-sized unit that uses biomass to purify water for an entire home, the biomass squeezed makes about 2-gallons of biodiesel a day and the water is almost pure so treated and recycled. The cubes that do this are made to put in the yard nearby, two stacks about 7-feet tall handle a family.

This method is good for pig & dairy waste as well, where most of the push is coming from as it turns a large expense into a "revenue stream".

Another aspect is using thermal-fluids to move heat-cold around homes, more versatile & efficient than air not just specific heat but motors to move the air cause most of the cost for air-conditioning so important energy pieces to a truly autonomous home that supplies modern living onsite.

Diane, I appreciate the welcome and look forward to being a part of the network. However, I was deeply disturbed today to receive an email message indicating that an inappropriate comment from this network had been posted on my profile. I see that there is no such comment posted, but I am concerned about the network security.

Thanks for the welcome, Diane. I'm actually looking to get more information into this career field, education and certification. I'm on the Cape so if you know of any resources in this area I would love to hear about it. Kinda new to the area so any information, no matter how obvious would be appreciated.

Thanks Diane! I blog on wordpress. Is there a way to send my blog posts here?  Couldn't quickly find a setting for that or an app.  Thanks.

Dear Diane:

Thanks for the nice Welcome! This looks like a great HP community builder. I've often thought there should be a place to share info. Is there a Wiki type glossary specific to building science, home performance, passive solar, etc.?

Good to be here,

Diane, very interesting...I am currently on a conference call discussion one part of which relates to this website and the role of moderator (that HEP uses moderators)...just as I was saying "I don't see a moderator" and "what does a moderator do?" -- you emailed me! Great timing. Can you comment on this? I work with David Shepherd-Gaw and am exploring how the Ning platform can be used to facilitate some goals we have with an emerging EE program we run up here.

Thanks. Have time to check it out.
