During my search I kept seeing that their amazing projects in our region and I talked to many people with passions in permaculture (food), architects (housing), solar, and I got fed-up. Now thanx to Enspiral’s well documented project I think I got a pretty clear idea on how to solve this, I call this Nexo (see video below).
