[before_listing id=336 images= youtube=null] Physicist with dairy farm roots living in the city seeking good reference material/books/manuals for offgrid living with the goal of moving the family back to a rural environment in a few years. Presently, I have installed solar panels and windmills, and I’m always experimenting with gardening projects. I’ll be looking to by land in north Mississippi in the near future to build an earth home in a remote location. [landbuddy_listing id=336 youtube=null]

    The Foxfire Books 1 through 6 are all you need.

    I am in the Memphis area, as well.

    I plan to move back to west-central AL soon and set up off-grid. Perhaps we could exchange some ideas and/or theories.

    I research everything on the web and print relevant stuff to remember it for design ideas. It’s hard to recommend any books for going off the grid as there are many disciplines required for doing so.Like producing your own power,food,dealing with bio waste and personel protection. Plus learning to live with less..This has to become a mind set along with everyone else around you..My advice is research all you can on the web, and pick each aspect of your plan you need to research individulally. like the best ways to produce power not using just solar. That is how I have been doing it Just an idea ..larry

    General reference: The Renewable Energy Handbook, Revised Edition: The Updated Comprehensive Guide to Renewable Energy and Independent Living, by William Kemp. His latest edition is 2009. Otherwise, try to find books in specific categories; few available are all inclusive.
