Top 5 Micro Wind Turbines

They may not be for everyone, depending on State to State laws.. but these could save you money on your current electric bills or may even completely eliminate them. Do your research before you rush out to buy one and remember planning is key to successfully live off the grid always. Just like a business, location, location, location, are the first 3 important rules to doing it successfully.
For me the Bergey brand seems to be the most reputable.

Three RIvers Recreation Area, Oregon

Named one of the best spots to live off grid by MSN real estate, the property is zoned as a recreational property so most owners come for camping and entertainment, but still it has a private beach, a recreation hall, a fire department, gun range and sand dunes for ATV’s. And the population of Three Rivers consists of about 80 full-time residents, but many more part-timers who stay for weekend getaways, vacationers and they all stay in some of the roughly 600 homes on the property. The full-timers range from doctors, welders, students, sales managers, property brokers, and retired professionals.   

Even though Three Rivers Recreation area is off the grid, Internet and satellite television are available, according to ThreeRiversProperty.com. Residents are using solar panels, wind turbines and generators for their electricity needs. Though some are using propane gas. And for water some are getting the water from deep wells, while other homeowners have water hauled in to them. 

Property Costs: Home prices range from $13,000 to $800,00.

A Gathering For Kindred Souls looking to live off The Grid Thanks You

joliver_off-the-grid

I believe in this day and age more and more people are looking for a better way of life. The hustle and bustle of city life and working day in and day out to just survive and live paycheck to paycheck has lost the luster it once had. Blame it on the economy, society, government, whatever the reason, it seems to me more people today want to change this for themselves and for others. This blog is dedicated to showing what is out there for those who want this change in their lives. We try to show and give anyone the opportunity to share such offers or projects etc. and we try showing the beauty of living off the grid as well as the struggles, and share what little knowledge we know about the subject of living off the grid and learning more ourselves each day. Seeing the growth of how this has all started on the Facebook page in such a short period of time has really amazed me and shows me that we are not the only ones out there who believes living off the grid and using renewable energy is the way to go for a better future. Its estimated that over 180,000 people live off the grid in America today and more people are searching to look into living off the grid.

Our blog as of today has over 52,000+ views, with an average of 500+ visitors a day, in just under a month, our first month up and running. From all corners of the world mainly the US who has the most views, also in Canada and Australia which are 2nd and 3rd with the most views.

We thank you ALL for the views, and sharing in the experience. Thanks!
