My name is Nelly, Im 23 years old & my life is as boring as it gets… for now. I work a full time job doing administration for a real estate company & the money is never enough living in todays society. I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who lives off the grid? How much was their home? How are utility bills? & basically if going off grid was worth it?
@nellyenid, Hey Nelly! I’m on the same boat. I’ve actually been researching about living off the grid. I don’t have real life experience but I do have some knowledge on it. Homes vary in price and it depends on the land you purchase as well. You also have the choice of moving into an already established community.
Here is a directory of Eco-Villages
When you live off the grid you don’t have utility bills because living off the grid means being self sustainable and not depending on the government. You can have solar or wind energy sources and others renewable energy sources, but I’m not too sure about that.
The reason I want to live off the grid is that I don’t want to contribute to the destruction of this planet any longer. I don’t like the capitalistic financial pressures. I would be living with like-minded people. The food is completely organic and fresh. Not to mention you know what you’re getting. You can grow drugs. I want to live in a place with much better weather. I feel like it is the definition of true freedom. I would say it is more than worth it and I will definitely move sometime soon.
