Hi fellow off gridders! I’m sort of new to this lifestyle and it feels so right but frustration has risen a few times. I joined to find support, share ideas, and help others if I can. My husband and 3 children 12 and under live on a 3 acre water front boat access only off grid property that we spent a year cultivating, building and renovating. Our boat commute to North Vancouver, BC is only 15-20 min so you could say we have the best of both worlds but we are still very remote. I look forward to connecting with you as we grow in this somewhat unique lifestyle.

    My name is Eilish, and I am a masters student studying design strategy in Toronto Canada. I am originally from Vancouver!

    I am currently working on a project surrounding home energy storage, and I was wondering if there would ever be a time that we could chat about your interest and experience in off grid living. I am currently in the research phase of the project and I am gathering insight on how those interested in off-grid living think about energy use. If you are not the right person to speak to on this topic perhaps you can direct me to someone else!
