When Does It Make Sense to Go Off Grid Completely?
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.
