Living off the grid...has that been of any interest to anyone?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Mon Mar 24, 2014 9:35 am

Just recently, I am learning what it really is. Does anyone know how that could even be possible?

This is a short explanation, but the thing I don't like about the description is only people with "money" are listed as examples.

"The term off-grid refers to not being connected to a grid, mainly used in terms of not being connected to the main or national electrical grid. In electricity, off-grid can be stand-alone systems (SHS) or mini-grids typically to provide a smaller community with electricity. Off-grid electrification is an approach to access electricity used in countries and areas with little access to electricity, due to scattered or distant population. It can be any kind of electricity generation. The term off-the-grid (OTG) can refer to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.
Off-the-grid homes are autonomous; they do not rely on municipal water supply, sewer, natural gas, electrical power grid, or similar utility services. A true off-grid house is able to operate completely independently of all traditional public utility services. The idea has been recently popularized by certain celebrities including Ed Begley, Jr.[1] who stars in Living with Ed[2] television show on the Home & Garden Television network. Actress Daryl Hannah promotes off-grid living and constructed her home in Colorado according to those principles, as does survival expert and Dual Survival co-star Cody Lundin,[3] who lives in a self-designed, passive solar earth house in the high-desert wilderness of Northern Arizona, collecting rainwater, composting waste, and paying nothing for utilities.[4][5]"

I have .....
and I would again

Nothing NEW about it.....My Grandparents did....everyone used to

Electricity did not come to the "Hallow" where I grew up until the 1950's
and very few cars or trucks until the 50's

Had neighbors who still lived that way until the 1970's

We all as a species used to live off grid.

Maybe we forgot more then we actually know

I wonder... would a person really be able to do that without someone stepping in and citing some law against it.. even if it's human services or some such organization to stop a person....
Seems to me, if it were that simple... more would be doing it?
I'm going to be checking into this a lot more.

I don't think many forgot... just that many laws don't allow us to live the way we use to. Even wells and sewers are being changed and laws made about what is and isn't allowed. Nothing stays simple... people always seem to find a way to make it more complicated and give laws that make you follow.
