Gizmodo really did a fine job putting these nice photos together for us of off the grid houses.There are a slew of reasons why living off the grid can be beneficial. It can save you money on electric and heating bills .Plus with a possibility of future oil shortages that is another good reason to go off the grid .Having a home like one of these, you would be able to generate your own heat and electric and be self sustainable.
For this West Virginia couple who live 1 -1/2 miles away from the nearest power lines, living off the grid was much more feasible for them.It would of cost them $70,000 to extend electricity from the local power company to their property.Their system came with a total installation cost of $50,000 – $20,000 less than the cost of extending power lines to their land.The cost was substantially more than they would have paid for a system that augmented public utilities.
There are already several communities around the United States where people live independent of any utility connections in sustainable, self-sufficient villages.
