Default Solar Powered Amish

Appearently, the Amish are a large user of solar energy.

Their avoidance of technology does not mean they see such things as "evil". Indeed, the Amish view modern advances such as electricity or automobiles as items that depend on the outside world, and therefore get in the way of their intended separation from that existence.

Suncrest Solar just outside Berlin where veteran installers Reuben Miller and his son Jonathon are working hard to meet demand. The two have done 500 installations in the last few years, and in the last two years have been doing a good deal of 12-volt wiring jobs for Amish homeowners.
