A Tumbleweed in the Sun

Our good friends at the Solar Living Institute have a modified  Tumbleweed on their grounds in sunny Hopland, CA. So many of our fans ask about using solar power in their future tiny houses, we thought we'd show you how its done by the pros themselves:

The Solar Living Institute has 2 full-time caretakers living in the modified Epu that they built. As you can see, the idea of powering a Tumbleweed is not only feasible, but quite practical as well. You would expect nothing less from the authors of the definitive guide to solar living Solar Living Source Book.
