Home Forums General Discussion Living off-grid in canada Re: Living off-grid in canada



I live in Ottawa. We live in a 2,800 sq. foot home totally off the grid. Nothing fancy. Standard home, stick frame, wood heat (when I have the wood), a 1300 W array, 3.5 kW inverter, 2400 amp-hour battery bank at 24 volts…

yes – totally doable. I have a 2 year old, and another on the way….yes…it is easy to do, takes little lifestyle change, and did not break the bank. i am permitted through the Electrical Safety Authority, and did everything above the board….
