Is Living Off the Grid on Your Bucket List?
It’s becoming a common item on bucket lists everywhere. Many are choosing to live off the grid and use natural resources. By living “off the grid” we mean there is no connection to the “power grid” But it’s more than no electricity. It really means no more public utilities like water, gas, electricity, etc. They choose instead to use solar power and rain cisterns to harvest water. Finding sustainable energy is key and solar panels or windmills usually achieve this.
Most people choose to live off the grid because they want to live greener lives and leave less of a carbon footprint. Others choose it because they are tired of the utility bills that sneak in their wallet and drain it. Whatever the reason, it takes dedication and commitment to living this way. It probably won’t happen all at once, but with dedication one can learn more about living green and finding alternative energy and changing their lifestyle to responsibly use the energy one does find.
One thing is certain. If you do live off the grid you will need some acreage to do it. You will want space for your free-range chickens and a coup to harvest your eggs. You may even want some space for hunting wild game. A river or pond would be nice so you could fish up some of your protein and maybe even bathe in warmer weather!
