Have you ever wondered what life off the grid would be like? Maybe you’re asking yourself, “What does off grid” mean? It means you are not connected to a utility company power line, the electrical grid. You must produce your own electrical power to meet your needs.
The average cost of extending power lines is approximately $30,000 per mile. Check with the nearest utility to determine what your costs might be. Generally speaking, if you are more than 1/2 mile from the utility line, you can install a renewable energy (RE) system to produce your power at less cost than extending the power line.
