Existing eco-villages (intentional living communities) often use 1/2, 1/4, or even less energy compared to "regular" communities. The designs that allow high-standards of living with low- low- energy use need to be documented and shared so that humans can start to decarbonize our energy systems.
Solar plus batteries and human-powered generators are now capable of running dozens of tools and appliances, and those are operations that can be entirely outside of the realm of regulated utility companies. These solutions can be portable, convenient, reliable, resilient, and cost effective.
