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 - 5 Comments in I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE OFF-GRID

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 www.bushpilotproperties.com 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!

Tackling The Council
by ECHOBABY on JUNE 10, 2010 - 7 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

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 I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

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?
