Northern Self Reliance, LLC is a small business I started in Amherst, Maine. It is an extension of my work as a consulting mechanical engineer and also my attempt to teach and give back. I have been a mechanical engineer for over twenty years working in aerospace, medical, printing, and consumer goods. My true love, however, is alternative energy.
One thing that makes me nuts is when a valid technology is blatantly oversold by someone with no technical training trying to make a dollar. Wind and biomass gasification are perfect examples of this. YouTube is full of this sort of hype. Hopefully after poking around this site a little you will be better armed to ward off the demons of stupidity.
Whenever you go to an alternative energy website I would encourage you to try to find an “About” section that outlines why someone is qualified to speak on their chosen subject matter.
If there is a particular topic you don’t see but would like added to this site send me an email at email@example.com . I may be able to fit it in.
