Seeing it first hand

I have thought about going off grid for years but would like to see a successful model of it myself. Anyone nearby that would like to share?

Off Grid in BC
by ROB CHIPMAN on JUNE 25, 2010 - 6 Comments in post

I want to help people find off the grid homesites in BC, especially cool and remote ones in the Cariboo/Chilcotin.

I know a lot about buying and selling real estate in British Columbia, and I know the Chilcotin/Cariboo quite well. Check out for properties I’m selling.

Off-Grid Assistance

I design power systems for off grid situations and I have lived on a boat and in an RV; both of which are off grid. My wife grew up on an off grid homestead. She was 14 before she saw her first light bulb in a home.
There is more to living off-grid than knowing how to make electricity.

I’ve lived off-grid here since 1994. Mostly just want to help out, talk to others living off-grid, see what’s happening in the off-grid community and whatever else happens.

We’ve lived 4 miles from the grid for many years. Loving it!

We are off grid and would like to meet others around the state of Maine

Tackling The Council
by ECHOBABY on JUNE 10, 2010 - 7 Comments in post

I own a piece of just outside Gedney Hill,Lincolnshire,UK.I have a mobile home on the land that has been there for over four years.The Council Planning officer has visited several times and i have already told them i am not living there.I rent a house in the village at the moment.
Eventually i would like to live on the piece of land and have a few animals and living a simple life.
What i don’t know is what my rights are, so when the council planner’s visit i am in a better position.
Is there anybody out there who can give me some advice,even if they don’t live in my area? I can communicate through my sister’s computer or i am happy to speak to anybody on the telephone.
Any comments would be much appreciated.

Off-grid Renter?
by VEG-HEAD on JUNE 10, 2010 - 7 Comments in post

I’d like to be a little bit less dependent on the power company. I don’t own my own home but I have lots of space and live in a very sunny area. Is there a portable-ish solar solution? Something I could use to power a few things 9 month of the year?
