One of the first things that we both feel is needed is an alternative energy system and so we have decided that solar is a priority.
As some of you have seen while at Reverie we have two beautiful look-out areas that have a hillside of manzanita in between and a few towering gray pines.
We thought this hillside to be a perfect spot for ground-mounted solar panels that can fulfill our current and future energy needs at Reverie.
But as I said this hillside is filled with manzanita which by itself is very pretty but on a larger scale is a dangerous fuel for forest fires and so this gives us two good reasons to clear the hill.
Luckily we have had a lot of rain which is good for the area in general but it also makes it easier to clear for our arborist who has not only taken care of our oak trees but also helps us clear areas that need it.
