We’re finishing up our incredible tenure here in Self-Reliance.
The house has been performing very well. Here are the numbers:
Total Electrical Consumption: 2,220 kWh
Total PV Production: 3,476 kWh
For a net surplus of 1247 kWh, worth about $137 at the going rate for electricity.
Pretty cool stuff.

Spring term is here and it’s time for students to move into Self-Reliance! Who will be living there? After submitting applications, three eager students were selected to live in the home for the spring 2012 semester. They demonstrated a strong committment to sustainable living and a genuine desire to continue outreach efforts. Meet 2011 decathletes Gwen Cook ’13, Cordelia Newbury ’13 and Wyatt Komarin ’12 and see why they’re so excited about moving into Self-Reliance!
Just this month, recent Midd alumna and visiting Italian instructor Deb Tennen moved into Self-Reliance for January term. Read more in the Burlington Free Press article about our home’s much anticipated transition from competition show house to cozy winter residence.
