      • For the new houses being built in the Lower Ninth Ward, Mike insisted that they all be equiped with geo-thermal climate control systems. They allow the houses to heat or cool themselves using the constant temperature of the ground from 250 feet under the house. In addition, solar panels would be used to provide most of the electricity the homes would need. The result of these two measures is that the homeowners would have their utility costs cut by over 80%.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Sherry Holmes: I'm always soaking wet. I'm always sweating through my clothes. As soon as you get out of the car when we get here in the morning, you're sweating.
        Adam Belanger: The heat is unbearable. It is insane.
        Damon Bennett: Our crew is slowly dying. It's frustrations of 45 degree heat (Celcius) and working in it all day; the frustrations of being with each other constantly; the frustrations of, y'know, working six days out of the week...probably going up to seven days a week; problems with getting materials; problems with plans; adjusting to all of that. It's a lot to take.
