Collection Of Off Grid Projects
The Off Grid Project was originally planned to run throughout 2012. The original intentions were to show you how to get your own home off the grid for under $5,000. Due to the success of my daily YouTube videos, The Off Grid Project has been continued and has become a daily vlog of my life.
You can follow my daily videos here: The Off Grid Project Daily Video Updates
Many homes will be able to go off the grid for less than $5,000. Some may cost more (but do not have to). It all depends on your household power usage and how much you are willing to make a change in your energy usage. Usage tables and helpful ideas will also be covered on this website to show you the way to energy independence.
