That's awesome. We have been investigating all options when it comes to becoming self reliant and energy efficient...I think one of the major things we are considering is geothermal heating/cooling, which does not rely on any fossil fuels...that, combined with solar panels, could create a home that is nearly self sufficient.

I read of one home in Waterbury that was build very efficiently and used the geothermal heating, and their utility bills, including heat and electric, are under $100/month. Even in winter.

But the dome is a great idea for new construction...

New windows throughout our house and a new, modern boiler has cut our heating costs IN HALF. Worth every penny.
