MAIN MENU

Energy

Energy is an important topic to us.  As much as we would like to be 100% off-grid, we are not able to because of city laws, and because our coffee house has energy needs.  With that said, our focus is going to be how can we use less energy for the things we need?

BAKING

COOKING

COOLING

ELECTRICITY

We are required, by city ordinance, to be connected to the grid.  However, we are allowed to have solar.  We have to be creative in figuring this out.

HEATING

  • Fireplace (currently our only source of heat in the winter)

HOT WATER
