More than that actually. His (our) farm was a sort of proving ground for his ideas. We had electric lights, hot and cold running water, radio & sometimes TV, refrigeration, central heat, washing machine & etc. and four season gardening too. And he believed the direction the world was headed with industrialization & urban development was troublesome. There would be a fine line between him and today's eco-nuts (more for wise use than non use, but he was all about sustainability). I don't think he would have advocated massive wind farms to power a city, rather everyone would produce their own energy using whatever resources they had, and waste nothing.
That was all built from about 1950 until he was killed in 1961.
