    Iam just a guy with some connections. If I can find the right group of people and property, it is possible to get funding. The people with money would most likely want to make money somewhere. So Iam gathering people a plan and information. So far the plan is a complicated one involving a large infostructure. Including rainwater storage, grey water, geothermal, solar pumps, passive solar, storm and under ground survival shelter. All this would be in place before any above ground work would be done. The plan is to have a megawatt wind generator, solar array, irrigation system, etc. My vision for a echo community involves an automatic system that allowes individuals to do as they wish. 40 acres would be set aside and divided for individual useage The community could house 80 to 100 people. So I guess I may become a developer. I have and extensive background in construction. This is a life long dream.

    Brent,

    Thanks for responding. Southwest Missouri has the most promising wind on average. It is rated a 3 the rest of Missouri is rated a 2. A south facing foothill with long ridge and some bottom land would be ideal. Each unit will have access to one half acre to utilize as they wish. Taking advantage of the hill hight for wind and facing south for the sun will add to the amount ofelectricity produced. We are looking to build 25 to 40 units depending on requests.

    Do you have land or know of land available?

    My average electrical use for my home is 875 kwh per month, how many volts would be needed to supply that?

    Thanks Kevin

    Hello Gwenellen,

    My name is Kevin. Just now found this site and you were the first post I have seen.

    Currently Iam looking for 100+ acres in Missouri USA to build a echo community. Have you had experience with solar and wind generators? Solar water pumps? Would like also to harness fitness equipment. Community will be off grid. Love to discuss the possibilties with you.

    Kevin
