    Hi I am working towards an off grid semi- retirement, Have my electrician red seal and am working on my masters. I spend a lot of time planning and modelling my solar project. Looking to talk with other who are going off grid or are off grid. Right now i am in the city. I am curious how other deal with the requirements for municipalities to hook up to the grid. I want to make a print that lays out what i want so i can take it to an engineer when its time to build my home. Ideally i would like to collect and treat rain water, use a composting toilet and a passive solar design to heat my home with minimal electrical heating from a solar system with batteries. But it looks like i will have to have a septic system to meet codes and get a well for water. what are your thought and experiences on this?

    – looking into going off the grid, West of Edmonton. Would love to hear about others experience, and challenges. Possibly even visit you, see what you have set up, bounce ideas off you, help each other.

    the only problem with owning land is that the government will know where you are.
