I would like to know if their is a current list of people in Britain that are currently living off-grid? If a list is not available, maybe we can start one in this thread. A simple “Hello, My name is (insert name), I’m located near (insert area)” would make a good point of contact for others already living off-gird, or for people thinking of living off-grid in the future.
Would love to hear back from you all.
All the best
Okay, to get the list started:
1. Hello, My name is Ben, I’m located near Buckinghamshire
Currently not off-grid, but very fast working my way towards it. I work as a graphic designer/ web designer.
i live in the north east and currently live with the rents being only twenty two but am eventually want to live off grid and on a narrowboat that is self suficant as possible and am also into bushcraft and the outdoors
anyways and have joined this forum to see how to effectively live green
Yep, great idea. We’re a family of 3 returning to uk from abroad. Have bought a 30ft converted horsebox which we’ll be living in on land somewhere in Norfolk, solar and generator powered, maybe wind gen if the site is windy enough. doubtful in norfolk, unless right on the coast.
We lived in a 35ft boat on the Broads before we came away, so if you need/want any advice, please get in touch. Not experts by a long way but…
As always in the uk, finding the site/boatyard is the hardest part, don’t even bother approaching planning authorities. Read nick’s book, plenty of advice in there. (now, where to site the polytunnel?)
