To answer your question. I have lived off grid in the past and for the past decade have worked as a power system designer for off grid and marine applications. The main reason I am not off-grid now is because after my third stroke we needed to live close enough to a doctor and hospital to get help.

Last time we could not get anyone to take me to hospital. Nearest doctor was 70 kilometers away and closest friend was 5 kilometers away. And when you need assistance it helps if it happens during daytime when your friends have their computer on. Last time was in the middle of the night. We have not had a phone this past four years.

As to being critical, that goes with the engineering territory. I was designiing and building wind generator controls back in 1977. I have been involved in alternative energy in various forms ever since. You always look to the worst case application first then engineer solutions around that.
