Off-Grid Living in FIji, Koro Island
by VONLUCKNER on SEPTEMBER 30, 2010 - 8 Comments in I AM OFF GRID AND I WANT OTHERS TO JOIN ME

A short video of a reconstruction of a 300-year old home that was built in Fiji in an off-grid development on Koro Island, Fiji – 1 acre lots here sell for $25,000 and we have the most fertile soil for planting. Go off-grid in Fiji!

Student looking for somewhere off grid
by RAKA13 on SEPTEMBER 29, 2010 - 1 Comment in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Hi,
I’m a student at Kingston university, and I have a strong interest in environmental issues.

I’d like to find somewhere off grid to live.

If there’s anywhere in or around London that exists, please tell me.

Thanks,

Mark

Looking for land to live on
by DESIGNDAYS on SEPTEMBER 29, 2010 - 1 Comment in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Im looking for land in which to site my Shepherds hut for 18 months. Im hoping to be self-sufficient with solar power, chemical toilet & firepit for cooking.
I have my own dog walking/pet sitting business but can also do some work in return for the lodging.

Who is Interested?
by DAVIDFIEDLER on SEPTEMBER 27, 2010 - 4 Comments in I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE OFF-GRID

I am interested in finding out, the interest there is, in living somewhere:
1)without electricity (unless it is of your own invention)
2)without plastics or oil
3)without government

Would anybody desire this? Does anyone believe the true alternative fuel is not using any fuel at all, but fire and trees in a responsible, sensible fashion??

Destiny and The Calling

I currently live in north Georgia and need help getting off the grid. I’m 27 and have been trying to get off the grid for a while and it has been difficult finding like minded people. I’m hoping to find a like minded community or one we can start were I can surround my self around loving, intellectual, self sufficient people. I know I have allot to offer and would like to talk more about it. Contact me at Skype: kennedyinsgroup Msn Messenger: jmattk@mac.com or just give me a call.

Baja Sur – 2 sides
by BILLDER99 on SEPTEMBER 16, 2010 - 3 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Sept 2010: We have been living in Loreto, Baja Sur for 5 years (on the grid), Sea of Cortez side. Purchased a lot on the Pacific side, planning an “off-grid retreat” for cooler-dryer summer air, located on the legendary surfing points at Scorpion Bay. In 2004-2005, we took a year off to travel around the continent hauling a 5th wheel trailer and living off grid… system wise, the same concepts apply. I am a custom homebuilder… going to be fun!

Lo_Tide
by TOM on SEPTEMBER 8, 2010 - 11 Comments in I AM OFF GRID AND I WANT OTHERS TO JOIN ME

Lo_Tide is an off-the-grid house on the western edge of Eglin AFB in NW Florida, near Pensacola. We have 2.5 acres, but are located in a Florida Nature Conservation area, so we have waterfront property without neighbors! The power system is a 15kw diesel generator that runs off of vegetable oil, and a 1.8kw solar array with an 1100 Amp-Hour battery bank. The inverter is a Xantrex SW Plus 4024 with a GSM (generator start module). The system is completely automatic. Routine maintenance is simple. Go to http://www.solarfloridahome.com for pictures, and download the property overview. Also a blog about Solar Living in Florida.
