There are several perks to living off the grid but here are 4 good reasons you may already be considering in your search for another way to provide energy for your home…
1) Independence – Living off the grid means you are not dependent on your local power commission to provide energy to your home. Instead, you depend solely on nature and renewable energy sources.
2) Unlimited Power – Depending solely on nature for your energy needs means that you have a plentiful source of clean and renewable energy. As long as the sun is shining or the wind is blowing, or the water is flowing, you have energy options.
3) Free Energy – It is true that very few things in life are free, however, when your home is harnessing its power from nature, you don’t get a power bill each month - imagine, free power, month after month, year after year!
4) Minimum Footprint – As energy costs continue to increase, and non-renewable sources are continually depleted, people are searching for environmentally safe options to power their homes.
Living off the grid nowadays does not mean you must sacrifice modern conveniences. Today, you truly can have it all! There are several Off Grid System options including Solar, Wind, and Water sources. Depending on the location of your property and the availability of the elements, you can use nature to generate all of your energy consumption needs.
Solar power is by far the most popular and widely used renewable energy source. We have been harnessing solar power for a very long time; because it is effective. There is no greater or more reliable energy source than that of the sun. Today’s Solar panels are built to be extremely durable and to function in even the harshest of climates. Panels can be installed directly onto your residence or business, or, on platforms close by. It is important that they are placed in an area that receives consistent sunlight throughout the year, from season to season.
