Joel: 
This is a great suggestion, hopefully not just to create bragging rights, but 
to adopt the scientific method to evaluate the effectiveness of the 120+ 
different permutations based on best intentions, limited budgets, personal 
preferences and even misguided rumormongering.
 
How would the evaluations be conducted?

I've proposed to the National Coho Conf group an Ecovillage Face-Off, a
humorous game show format to compare Hundredfold Farm's energy savings with
other ecovillages. Categories could include Electricity Generation, BTUs or
Therms produced, R-value Construction, Water Efficiency, maybe a Wild Card
category? Could be fun...
 
We're issuing the challenge. Any takers?
