Just got the utility bill for the veterans green house in Detroit. OUCH!
$300 increase per month since we started to heat the house.
With a month of subzero temperatures in Detroit it is surprising how much it costs just to heat two rooms with electric oil heaters.
By next winter we will have a sustainable and cost effective heating system using passive solar rocket stove technologies and gas back up.
Until then, we need to pay the heating bill to keep our veterans working on the house and keep them warm. We have two full time green veterans and another on his way from Colorado to help work on the house and teach sustainable urban planing.
Next month we start the electrical service upgrades to the veterans green house with the help of local 58 and The Home Depot Foundation.
Once the electrical is fixed we will be able to produce our pallet furniture and hold classes on sustainability.
We just got to keep the lights on until we can start to generate an income.
PLease help the Veterans Green House in Detroit keep the heat on and the veterans working for a sustainable future in Detroit.

Recent tornadoes in Illinois has generated several request for the Veterans Green Bus to respond.
Our capability has been complicated by maintenance issues. It is never a good time to breakdown. But we can't afford to risk promising capabilities we can't deliver.
At the moment the bus needs variable timing advance problems repaired. This prevents us responding to demand at the present time.
We were taking the winter to raise the money for a complete over haul = $25,000
If we could get the variable timing advance fixed we could suspend our work on the bus to respond in Washington, Illinois but, we would need to raise at least $1500 for the repairs.
If you would like to help with this repair you can donate here and add a note that it is to be used for the "variable timing advance" issue ASAP.
