DO YOU ENJOY YOUR VIEW? WE DO….FOR NOW!

We live on a hill on the prairie, and we can see for miles and miles. Wild Steer Butte was named long ago by homesteaders, and as far as we know it hasn’t in the past been labeled on any map, just on the sign out in front of our yard. We love living here on ‘The Hill’, close enough to town if we really need something, yet far enough away that we and our farm neighbors have space and privacy. It is our home, and is a peaceful sanctuary for ourselves and the folks who find their way here. Now we find ourselves being surrounded by a future wind farm, courtesy of Shell Canada.

We welcome you to walk with us as we journey through the ups and downs of dealing with encroaching industry while we explore off grid living. This yard was supported by windmill power before there was a grid, and maybe it’s time to get out from under the increasing power bills and do it ourselves. We’re learning about off grid living, and looking at home wind power and home solar power options and ideas.

Please read and comment on our blog, and feel free to start or add to some discussion in the forum. Send us information and your input; submit your two bits as a guest article.

Help this website become an online community resource for those of us whose lives are affected by wind farms and also for all those who want to or are using alternative energy. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

P.S. enjoy the lovely landscape views you see here while they last…..
