When Does It Make Sense to Go Off Grid Com­pletely?

The Northern Star - Northern New South Wales Rural Weekly - - PORK -

I get asked by a lot peo­ple about whether it is fea­si­ble to go off grid. It does cost a lot more up­front, but most sys­tems will pay for them­selves in about 8-10 years. Apart from the fi­nan­cial con­sid­er­a­tions, there are many com­pelling rea­sons why we can’t af­ford to stay on the grid and burn more coal and gas. Hu­mans are fac­ing the largest cri­sis ever which will de­stroy hu­man civil­i­sa­tion as we know it. With threats like cli­mate change, de­for­esta­tion and mass ex­tinc­tion caused by un­sus­tain­able hu­man pop­u­la­tion growth, the nat­u­ral sys­tems that pro­vide wa­ter, air and food are break­ing down fast. Most peo­ple are too over­whelmed by the daily pres­sures of sur­viv­ing on di­min­ish­ing wages, the ris­ing cost of food, en­ergy and hous­ing. They don’t have the ca­pac­ity to even think about these larger is­sues that will roll over us like a train in the next few decades. How­ever, there are things you can do to re­verse the dam­age. You can plant more trees, switch to a plant based diet, grow your own veg­eta­bles and fruit, use rain­wa­ter and gen­er­ate and store your own so­lar power. We can help each other to live more sus­tain­ably now. 888 So­lar Tek are the off grid so­lar tech­nol­ogy ex­perts.
