Below is a link from a Zoom meeting titled Renewable Energy from your Land: From wood to solar and wind, sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County and the Southern Tier Chapter of the New York Forest Owners Association. The presentation was given by Ed Neuhauser. Individual renewable energy for heating and powering your home can take a variety of forms. One of the most basic forms is wood energy, which can be combined with Timber Stand Improvement (TSI) to improve the quality of your forest and provide domestic heat. It may also be possible to provide lumber with some of the trees removed during TSI. Advances in photovoltaics have made electric generation possible for individual homeowners. Community solar projects have made PV electrical generation possible for people who do not have the physical conditions to install panels. Wind power is possible in select locations in NYS. Heat pump technology for heating and cooling has now made this technology available to individuals. We will explore how these technologies can be used today. https://vod.video.cornell.edu/media/Renewable+Energy+From+the+LandA+Wood+Fuel+to+Solar+and+Wind/1_cit0sqxh
