    “And most people do live near work, and therefore an established community.”

    Only if your definition of living near work is within driving distance, which, as you know, isn’t saying much, reallly.

    Most people can not walk to work. And, therefore, many people do not live in established communities that are walkable. This is due to suburban sprawl and zoning regulations, especially Euclidean Zoning, which is the easiest to implement, the most instituionalized and the least flexible and, well, irrational, as it designates large tracts of land as solely residential with set standards – meaning people need to transport elsewhere for groceries or work, etc… I fear our definitions of community vastly differ.

    We need to eliminate rules that promote non-greenness, increase places that allow alternate power sources, which can be used as a backup/additional source and which could be sold into when extra alternate powere is generated by alternative sources. I yearn for a community that makes sense.

    There are most definitely off the grid communities. A good resource is http://www.ic.org (ic standing for “intentional community”). I lived at one of these communities last year. Do note, however, that not all the communities at that website are off the grid.
