To achieve an independence and live off-the-grid, one's electricity needs to be on-site and powered by renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar or geothermal. Generators and fuel reserves are also needed. This family uses a solar source for generating power for their home and other electrical tools. offgridsurvival.com does a great job sharing how this family is living off-the-grid.
We talk a lot about Off-Grid Living on this site; but for some, the reality of going off-the-grid seems like a dream that they will never quite attain. The realities of life always seem to be in the way.
I often get emails from people asking how someone can actually do it in today’s day and age, or lamenting over all the obstacles they see getting in the way of their dream.
- How will they make money while living off-the-grid?
- How can they live their current lifestyle in an off-grid setting?
- How will they power their home?
- How can they find land that is suitable for building an off-grid home?
For these reasons I’m going to start highlighting some real-life examples and stories of how people have successfully made the transition into off-grid living. We started with some brief profiles a couple weeks ago, sharing a couple stories from people who are living a mobile off-grid lifestyle. Today we are going to take a deeper dive, as we share the story of one family who decided to take the plunge and are now living their dream.
