Home Forums General Discussion Would anyone live without electricity? Re: Would anyone live without electricity?


I have camped many, many times without electricity, or with a battery operated radio. Usually with a battery operated or flame light to see at night, and often with a campfire. Camping for periods of time is nice in many ways, but permanently living that way—-no.

I like our independent home and Earthship, it is kind of like camping in the mountains every day, but with benefits and comforts. Solar electricity is great and I have enough for internet communications, LED screen TV, and to run my big electric guitar amps. When the sun isn’t shining, I can play on a lower wattage amp or use the acoustic. I can limit my TV, and heat coil oven use. I am happier when the sun shines, for sure.
