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
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??

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: email@example.com or just give me a call.

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 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.
