Off-grid: a place, building or person without mains water or power. Static or mobile - in a house or a hut, a boat or a camper van - to live off-grid is all about loosending the ties that bind us to teh fmailiar world of commuting, mortgages, no time and fast food, in order to rediscover our place in the natural world. Complete with camper van, Nick sets off around the UK to find off-grid heaven and meet people who are living the dream. Along the way he runs into backpackers and businessmen, radical hermits and right-wing survivalists - and plenty of ordinary working-parent families too. Sincere but irreverent, this is Nick's guide to avoiding pitfalls, to finding solutions (and some brilliant gadgets) as he strives to perfect the skills of this practical, freewheeling kind of self-sufficiency.

If living in a town or city you are dependent on their water, sewer, natural gas, electricity, and their street maintenance, but you pay a healthy price for these services. What happens when one of these services—or all of them—are interrupted? Are you prepared for even a few days of interruption? This little book may help and not cost a fortune to maintain a somewhat normal life when these outages occur. That being said, one must remember that the first fifty thousand or so years no one in the world had electric power and yet still seemed to flourish. Although I am not expert at anything, I have built and given information to many about living off-grid from my forty-seven years of doing so. The one thing I have learned is that money is the driving force for those that claim to be “experts,” but be careful of these ads, as most if not all have never lived off-grid and only know what they have been schooled on. That being said, there are a few that are really good; finding them is the problem. So, if you learn nothing else from this little book it will help to ask the right questions to help you find those few. I have tried to be honest because if you decide to build and live this lifestyle you will soon discover what I have written is fact not fiction, and only your lifestyle will determine how hard or easy it is to accomplish your goals. Although this is about living off-grid, it has some very good ideas and suggestions on how to build or buy on-grid systems in case you lose your power, that seems to occur about every storm, especially in the east and southern states. It has simple systems that you can install when you lose your electric power, water, or sewer, and it will make these outages tolerable and may even save a life.

Off-grid isn’t a state of mind. It isn’t about someone being out of touch, about a place that is hard to get to, or about a weekend spent offline. Off-grid is the property of a building (generally a home but sometimes even a whole town) that is disconnected from the electricity and the natural gas grid. To live off-grid, therefore, means having to radically re-invent domestic life as we know it, and this is what this book is about: individuals and families who have chosen to live in that dramatically innovative, but also quite old, way of life. This ethnography explores the day-to-day lives of people in each of Canada’s provinces and territories living off the grid. Vannini and Taggart demonstrate how a variety of people, all with different environmental constraints, live away from contemporary civilization. The authors also raise important questions about our social future and whether off-grid living creates an environmentally and culturally sustainable lifestyle practice. These homes are experimental labs for our collective future, an intimate look into unusual contemporary domestic lives, and a call to the rest of us leading ordinary lives to examine what we take for granted. This book is ideal for courses on the environment and sustainability as well as introduction to sociology and introduction to cultural anthropology courses.

Off the Grid confronts the ecological and cultural problems associated with the way we get and use energy, and explains how it is possible to live in a beautifully designed home using much less--no matter where your home is located. Our homes are connected by a nearly invisible grid of infrastructure that binds us together. It is a system of electrical poles, wire, substations, hydroelectric dams, telecommunication towers, and water extraction and sewage systems. From within this system we work, play, and raise families. We have also created one of the greatest environmental challenges known to modern civilization. The signs of our impact upon the world can be recognized in the reports of environmental changes occurring across the earth, and they can also be seen in the growing failures of the energy grids across the world as the current system is stressed beyond its capacity. Technologies that can be used to live off the grid (geothermal energy use, wind turbines, photovoltaic arrays, micro hydropower, rainwater collection and reclamation, and more) are explained as author Lori Ryker shows how to choose and incorporate these sources according to geography and climate. Off the Grid beautifully illustrates that this is not just a concept for rural living; examples of homes that are -off the grid- to varying degrees are found in New York City; Ontario, Canada; Stuttgart, Germany; Belmont, California; Pipe Creek, Texas; Clyde Park, Montana; Twin Lakes, Minnesota; Laytonville, California; Venice, California; and New South Wales, Australia. Off the Grid shows how we can take responsibility for our future choices and conveniences now, and proves that off-the-grid living is a concept that can be easily understood and adopted by everyone, regardless of where you live or how much money you make. Lori Ryker grew up in Texas and has lived and worked in a variety of locations, including Boston, New York City, Portland, and Basel, Switzerland. She now resides in Livingston, Montana, where she teaches in the School of Architecture at Montana State University and is a partner, along with Brett W. Nave, of Ryker/Nave Design. Their work has been published in The House You Build, and Western Interiors and Design. Ryker holds a MArch from Harvard Graduate School of Design and a Ph.D. from Texas A & M University. She is the author of Mockbee Coker: Thought and Process.

Book #2.Off-Grid Living: Prepper's Guide on Survival Gardening: Grow Your Own Food Most people don't have survival garden at the top of the priority list when they begin to treat the soil. In any case, over the long term and as the world news gets more critical and the future more unverifiable, they understand that garden can't be only a late spring diversion, however a spring, summer and fall survival garden will be required if they are to have enough products from the soil for the year. During the Depression time, these were the people that didn't feel the financial crunch in light of the fact that they could at any rate to nourish themselves. The expression of survival garden makes the reasonable qualification between growing a couple of tomato plants in the late spring and having the goal of sufficiently grown garden by harvesting a large portion of the year to eat crisp and save the overflow.
