Living Off the Grid
A Simple Guide to Creating and Maintaining A Self-reliant Supply of Energy, Water, Shelter, and MoreBook - 2008
In daily life, we can take control of the resources and services we depend on. Electricity and energy don't have to come off the public utility grid--alternatives abound in solar, wind, and water generated power. Design decisions can drastically affect power consumption, and bio-diesel and alternative fuels can help break the oil habit. Dave Black describes alternatives for eco-pimping your home and lifestyle for independence, economy, and a more integrated way of life. Equally valuable for the urban dweller vaguely concerned about the size of his or her carbon footprint and the rural self-sufficiency enthusiast, Living Off the Grid can help anyone take control of his or her life and way of living.
