A friend of mine provided the following advice. Any further thoughts?

I like:

* Clearing Vegitation without Burning
* Heat Powered LED Lighting
* Natural cooling methods

Those seem the most immediately practical to me.

Three projects seem just right to me, maybe slightly ambitious but then I'm not terribly familiar with how this process works and how time intensive it is.
