Self-proclaimed Mr. Hippie born in Yokohama does not contract electricity, water, gas, and tackles living in which he all covers them by himself. For example, electricity. He says that the method of generating electricity and transmitting it at a remote place is a waste because of the huge amount of power transmission loss. If you know how much you consume energy, you can know how much electric power you really need. Not limited to electricity, the place of production and the place of consumption are far apart and the location of the problem is difficult to see, he also says. From "Electricity At My Home."
