“I stayed with it because it worked, it was something I could see results from, not just in an environmental sense but also in a financial sense,” Ed mentions as he happily shares the “green” aspects of his new home including passive solar house design and a 10,000 gallon, underground, rainwater tank, “It’s a good way to live in every sense.” He also discusses his new online television series titled, “On Begley Street” and the motivation behind his well-known book, Living Like Ed.
