This is a guide intended only to give you a general informational overview of the 11 most fundamental things you would need to know before going off the grid.
It is a curation of "words-of-wisdom" gathered from the experiences of those who have taken the step of creating their own off-the-grid lifestyle.
It is relatively easy to go off the grid by simply cutting your connection to the power grid. But, it is very complicated to go completely off the grid to self-sufficiency. It is also very easy to underestimate what is involved in creating the off the grid self-sufficient lifestyle.
Get Off The Grid? Live off the grid? What does it take? That depends!
By "get off the grid" I mean so much more than just cutting the umbilical chord to the power grid for your source of electricity. It should go without saying that you will want to do that but you can also do so much more than that. It all depends on just how far you want to go, and can go, to have freedom from dependence on outside, vulnerable, resources.
For example, do you want freedom from having to eat GMO modified and generally mass-processed Super-Market food products? Then you will need to grow your own vegetables and possibly chickens as well. You could do that to meet your own food needs and even grow enough to create a source of income.
The "off-the-grid, self-reliant, lifestyle" label, in the context of this web-site and discussion, means so much more than just living a lifestyle in a home that is simply disconnected from the power grid and nothing more than that - the original definition of being "off-the-grid". This label also now means much more than a life lived in some remote boondocks location, even though modern usage of the term "off-the-grid" has now come to mean even that in the broadest sense of its use.
But here I am talking about living your life in a way that is essentially self-reliant and, ultimately, also self-sustaining: Looking at creating a lifestyle that is technically fully off-the-grid in every respect. This means having a lifestyle that is completely free of dependence on any form of public services.
