It is a green county for off grid friendliness (from the “Pockets of Freedom” thread). The aquifer is large and not too deep for wells, but rainfall average is arid. The soil is not very good. There are times of heavy wind(80mph+), and structures must also stand at least a 40 lbs/sq.ft. roof load. They use the 2003 IBC and 2006 IBC for insulation.
