What is 'Off The Grid' Living?

“Off grid living” can refer to one of two things.
  • Leaving behind all modern conveniences in order to pursue a simpler, self-sufficient life. This sort of off grid living can involve growing your own food and drastically reducing the amount of electricity required for your day-to-day living.
  • Living in a part of the UK that is not connected to the National Grid or the mains gas supply.
The first type of off the grid living is not for the faint-hearted. It requires a tremendous amount of effort and commitment, but it can prove hugely beneficial for any who are brave enough to try.The second type of off the grid living is very different. Indeed, it is likely that many of those currently living off the grid in the UK would, given the chance, be happy to connect their house to the National Grid and the mains gas supply!animation wagon
