    Off grid living is something that is becoming more and more attractive and mainstream, as the electrickery grid becomes more and more prone to blackouts, and voltage surges and the like quite often damage sensitive equipment.

    Being self reliant just takes the survival game to the next level. Running out of gas is one thing, but sunlight and wind is something we should always have abundance of, and turning it into energy that can not only run your home, but an electric car to boot sounds really attractive.

    After discovering this blog my eyes have been opened to how much stuff there really is available and how far you can take sustainable off grid living and motoring with available DIY technology.
