Germantown Solar

An exciting weekend at the Germantown farm building a solar shower. More info on the technical details coming soon, but we hooked up a home made solar panel, built from scratch by Wiley and Kaia to a tank Cory found in the hallway outside of the bathroom. It thermosyphons from the roof of a goat shed up to the second floor of the barn. We always seem to be waiting for the perfect material conditions and this seemed to be it. After countless beers, naps and trips to stores, Lauren took the inaugural shower, wetting her hair under gloriously lukewarm water. Really, perfect material conditions should have yielded more than lukewarm water. This only sets the stage for perfect material conditions for a maintenance trip.
