Gimme Shelter World Headquarters

Our office and shop started life as a soybean storage building built in the 1950s. 100% of our electricity is produced by two grid-tied, tracking photovoltaic panel arrays totaling 4.9 KWs (at far left and right). Hot water for our in-floor radiant heat is provided by twelve solar hydronic panels mounted on the roof of our shed. A wood-fired masonry heater completes our sustainable heating system. Prairie plants ring the perimeter of the building.
