Hamster powered night lights ?
Not as good as the commercial units but very advanced for a wooden box and a rodent !
Mrs. Hudson: [turning to Dr. John Watson] Doctor, you must get him to a sanitorium! For the past month, he's taken nothing but coffee, tobacco, and coca leaves. He never sleeps! I hear multiple voices, as if he's rehearsing a play.

Heating and cooling use a ridiculous amount of energy. Good insulation is a must. 'Insulate before generate'.
Windows facing the correct direction.
LiFePO4 battery bank.
Large and small inverter for optimum efficiency.
Large rain water tank.
Bore/dam water holding tank.
RO filter in case bore/dam water must be used for potable water.
Very high efficiency appliances.
Use most of your energy during the day, since we are lucky enough to have that giant fission reactor above our heads, spewing out free energy almost every day in Australia.
Protected garden space.
Biiig, stable temperature and humidity pantry. (Rat proof)
If you're a fair bit away from other people, spares of everything, some sort of communication means in case you're in real trouble.
Essentially, when you have to provide your own energy, you sure do change just about every habit, unless you put in a 30kw system.
