Tips For Going Off The Grid
#1. Choose the right location:
While it’s possible to go off-grid to an extent nearly anywhere, some places are certainly more agreeable than others.
- First, what kind of climate can you expect?
- Which natural disasters is the area prone to?
- What natural resources are nearby?
- Can you grow food there?
Keep all these questions in mind as you search for an ideal location.
#2. Have multiple power sources:
Solar, water, and wind power are all good options for off-grid living, depending on what the environment is like where you are, and you can use more than one of these power sources if available.
You may want a gasoline-powered generator as a backup.
What if you don’t have or don’t want to spend the $10,000 to $20,000 it costs for installing solar panels? Here’s what I did…
#3. Harvest rainwater if possible:
Putting the system together will be a pretty big task, but it will continue to pay off for years as you will be able to collect and store enough water to supply your family and garden with ease.
#4. Grow your own food:
You can become even more self-sufficient by growing a vegetable garden.
Depending on your location, you could also consider fruit trees to supplement your growing.
Consider livestock as well.
#5. Have fun with the transition!
There’s something really satisfying about not having to pay any electricity or water bills!
Why not use the savings to have a little party with your loved ones?
You deserve it!
