The smart way

Bridget has quite a few smart solutions on her way of living. Here comes a little presentation…

Her garage has a big solar panel roof! Quite expensive, but it will actually produce so much power, that the overproduce goes back to the market, and literally pay itself. And when its payd off, it will give her about 150 Euros extra a month…

Water: She has 3 big watertanks. 2 of them collect rainwater; 5500 l each – fills up from empty in 2 hours of hard rain.

and the last one recycles the water from the house trough a reed bed system:Trough a big septic tank underground, into this tank – and then it filters trough a reed bed

And then trough pipes into a nice little pond…

which doesn´t look so nice at the moment… But it will, when the summer comes, and the plants come up again! The water is highly filtrated, and is used to water her garden.

Selfsufficient watersupply! Should try that in Norway…
