In fact, what does off grid living actually mean? Well it means exactly what it says; you live off the grid - no power lines, no electric bills and total freedom from the increasing demands of the utility companies. You rely on renewable energy sources such as the sun and the wind, to provide your electricity. It also means that you are living in a more environmentally friendly way. The principle can be applied to every home, so this makes everyone a candidate.
Until recently, however, investing in renewable energy was seen as the province of "eco-warriors" and "tree huggers", but not any more. As energy demands increase globally and electricity bills continue to spiral upwards, the curiosity in renewable energy has turned into a more concrete interest in what benefit these technologies can actually provide.
