I'm John Loveless
Welcome To John Saves Energy!
I figured out how to transform a regular fuel burning house into an effectively solar powered, net-zero home. Now I want to show you how you can do the same.
There is a vast collection of articles and acquired knowledge here.
By reading these articles, you will learn how to increase the efficiency, comfort and energy independence of your home, business, appliances and vehicles, all without anyone noticing that something changed.
You will be amazed at how easy and fun it is to make improvements. A word of caution though, this website will probably cause your standard of living, quality of life, happiness, health and well-being to improve. Mine did. I was not expecting that.
The greatest investment you can make is in knowledge. Knowledge is power and having your own source of power brings independence, job security, self sufficiency and freedom.
