Home Forums General Discussion How go off grid legally in the USA? Re: How go off grid legally in the USA?


What state do you live in? In Arkansas if you live in the county, meaning not within city limits and you are not in a housing development where you have signed some contract with restrictions.. then you may do as you please, except for septic in which case you can get an exemption from that even if you have more than 10 acres. Of course if your structure falls in on someone while they are in it then you are still liable.
