The Simpsons to go off the grid for 500th episode

Makers respond to growing interest in off-grid lifestyle

We’ve known for a while that the milestone 500th episode of “The Simpsons” would come somewhere early in 2012, but FOX has now nailed down a date for the episode: Sunday, Feb. 19.

The episode is called “At Long Last Leave,” and  scant details have been released by makers Fox.  We only know the episode involves the Simpsons being evicted from Springfield and taking up residence with an off the grid community outside town. When Homer and family try to return home they are treated so badly they come to respect the warm welcome they received from the off-gridders.

Its not the first time Homer and family have toyed with the off-grid life. In an environmentally-themed episode aired Sunday, April 25th 2010, Homer tried out wind energy, and built a backyard turbine.

But when Homer realizes some of the power is being directed to the local electric company, he decides to remove his home from the grid and becomes completely dependent upon his  unreliable source of power. “From now on, the Simpsons are living intermittently,” he declares.

interesting, in both a sinister and productive way.
