First interview-Phillip and his wife Jeanne. Phillip uses methane as a source of energy in his house, sustained through the use of his cows manure. Future questions: how expensive is it? How hard is it to maintain? How much manure do you need? How much energy do you get?

Solar technology for tank
Water Breeze: drilling for water project providing water via pump and solar panels
Thoughts: water pumping, could use pumps to turn wheels attached to rope ideas similar to that in Nicaragua. Need to ask if there's a more sustainable medium. "Boosters" could have falling water into new pipes, starting a new system of medium. This would be all above ground, which would make maintenance easier than the alternative of underground.
Approximately 540 feet from tank location to houses. Give or take 50ft
