We live off the grid partly because we're concerned about what the future holds. This way we feel like we have a little more security looking after our own energy needs using solar power and a battery bank.
Truth time. The idea of generating our own electricity and providing our own heat and water was a little scary for me. And learning about off grid electricity, pumping water in winter, and dealing with batteries were completely new to me.
If you're thinking about moving to a home that's off the grid, ask yourself why. Some common reasons we hear include: > to be off the energy grid > more self-reliant > to save money > to feel more connected to nature
