A month ago I moved to an "Off-grid" home on 42 acres in the Bancroft area of central Ontario, Canada. (I was living on 3 acres in south western Ontario). I have solar panels and a back up gas generator for my electricity, a well for my water, a wood stove for heat during the winter,plus propane for my fridge, stove, water heater and for back up heat.
So far, I am enjoying it. The solar panels make enough energy during the day to power the computers (my son's and mine) and during the evening, we run the generator for a few hours to top up the batteries and to watch some TV, do laundry etc.
It is a bit different living off-grid as I do have to careful with how much electricity I use. It can be a bit frustrating at times. When there is no sun, we end up having to use the generator more;at the moment it's costing me about $30 a week for gas for the generator, which is still less than I was paying for my monthly electric bill.
This is a no experience for me, so it's a learning process, one I look forward to sharing with you!
