  what's  in  a  name?

    "up your solar?  Are you serious?"  



"Yes" 100% serious!! Solar energy is an amazing world that goes far beyond

frying ants with a magnifying glass. And so far, no one is taxing using the sun for energy!


  • Will you be building a new home soon? Then, it's definitely time to "Up your solar".
  • Do you have a sunny, south facing window? Then, it's time to "Up your solar".
  • Basic passive solar design of your new home is a no brainer and won't drain your budget.   

We've been living in southern Colorado since December of 2009. Fortunately, the climate and culture shock have mostly subsided. Our intimate experience with the Midwest suburban rat race now holds a spark of nostalgia. We reminisce of the color green and rich black soil. We hold a place in our hearts for paved roads, clean cars and good restaurant choices.

















This website is dedicated to all you suburbanites that fantasize about your own little place in the mountains.  Complete with solar power and a drive toward sustainability. And if you so happen to choose the high desert region of Southern Colorado, we can provide intimate knowledge through our own crazy experiences.

...What keeps us here is far more enticing than the drawbacks. Open space, affordable acreage, abundant wildlife, a million dollar view and insanely low taxes!!

Welcome! So glad you're here~ I am the author & creator of this website. Paul is the tireless creator of the sustainable stuff. We look forward to your chuckles, gasps and comments 

as you navigate your way through

these pages. Perhaps you'll be

inspired to Up Your Solar and

create a more sensible life! 


The Weather

is Fine!

Never mind that at any point in time, Colorado is either going into or coming out of a drought. It's a different world out here and that's just part of it.
