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.

Everyone wants to get rid of such a lifestyle where you are dependent on these artificial things to survive. In many instances, people become so addicted and dependent on them that it becomes difficult and sometimes even impossible to survive without them. People spend all their lives working hard to earn a decent living and income, but the utility bills drain most of these hard earned funds. What if there was a way they could get out of this routine of bill payments and frustration. Going “Off the Grid” is the answer to such problems. All you have to do is produce your own resources and energy. This is why more and more people are turning towards this greener and environment-friendly way of living. The phenomenon of living with less is something that is everyone seeks. The idea of living with less has been described by Thoreau in Walden. Human lives have become very artificial and technical. There are a number of manmade technologies that we are now dependent upon. In many cases, our survival has become impossible without the presence of these human technologies. Our lives have become robotic like science fiction movies. There is a gadget for every activity and function. There are times in everyone’s lives where we want to have a reprieve from these gadgets and technological wonders. This is when people rush towards the great wilderness and outdoors where the living is still natural and untouched by human evolution. You do not rely on utility services and manmade resources out in nature. There are many people in the world who want adopt this way of living in the natural habitat for their entire lives. They want to abandon the urban lifestyle and artificial way of living and move to the wilderness to have a close encounter with the natural resources and habitats of the world. As per the statistics of various official sources, in the United States alone, more than 200,000 people are adopting this way of living in natural conditions. It is also known as “Off the Grid Living” lifestyle. They have said goodbye and farewell to community municipal services and have decided to face the challenges that are accompanied from this freedom from various types of utility services.

“The Grid” is the common term used for power grid. An average house is linked to natural gas, telephone, water and power lines. Choosing to go off the grid should mean that you will turn away from those public utilities in support of producing your own energy. A few homeowners decide to be off the grid partially through producing the supply to their own energy and trenching their phone lines, while depending on the comfort offered by the city sewage and water. Other people choose completely living off the grid through digging wells or making use of some cistern system in order to fetch water. A functional septic tank will take care of the sewage, which means you will no longer need to incur any water bill. If you want to learn and understand how this living method will be able to change your life for the better, checking out the following chapters should provide you the best ideas.

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.

For those of you already living off the grid, you may be experiencing the first kind of pleasant daydream. No matter what your fears for our society ... no matter what your fears for our material world infrastructure … no matter what your fears about your true ability to take care of all your material needs in a crisis … there really is action you can take now to care for the basic material needs of yourself and your family. And who knows? In the end, with enough people doing this same thing, our institutionalized services of water distribution, electricity generation and supply, food production and distribution channels – still working on processes and systems created “back when the dinosaurs were alive”, may finally get their act together and realize that the infrastructures they created so long ago don’t really work well anymore in our societies.

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.
