My love for Kristin Davis is now a little deeper (right above stalking) after watching this clip from Letterman last night. The Sex and the City actress looked gorgeous and bubbled with cuteness over her new solar-powered home and work with Oxfam America. Pegging herself as someone who makes a lot of money and wants to give back, Davis talked about her new home — and how she can go off-grid at the flip of a switch .
“I’m off the grid. I have a ladder that I climb up and I check my solar panels. They cover the whole roof, in LA, where there’s a lot of sun. And when the sun is shining, you can go and look and your electrical meter and it’s spinning backwards! It’s very exciting — and I have batteries to store the power in, and when the power goes out in LA, which happens a lot, you throw this switch and you’re completely off the grid!”
So, Kristin isn’t really off-gird — she’s more grid-tied — but in the event of a blackout, she can prevent the power from entering the grid and live off her batteries for awhile. Not bad.
The 43-year-old actress also talked about her work with Oxfam America — in particular her fight against poverty and desire to visit every country in Africa.
