Off-grid isnโ€™t a state of mind. It isnโ€™t about someone being out of touch, about a place that is hard to get to, or about a weekend spent offline. Off-grid is the property of a building (generally a home but sometimes even a whole town) that is disconnected from the electricity and the natural gas grid. To live off-grid, therefore, means having to radically re-invent domestic life as we know it, and this is what this book is about: individuals and families who have chosen to live in that dramatically innovative, but also quite old, way of life. This ethnography explores the day-to-day lives of people in each of Canadaโ€™s provinces and territories living off the grid. Vannini and Taggart demonstrate how a variety of people, all with different environmental constraints, live away from contemporary civilization. The authors also raise important questions about our social future and whether off-grid living creates an environmentally and culturally sustainable lifestyle practice. These homes are experimental labs for our collective future, an intimate look into unusual contemporary domestic lives, and a call to the rest of us leading ordinary lives to examine what we take for granted. This book is ideal for courses on the environment and sustainability as well as introduction to sociology and introduction to cultural anthropology courses.

A look inside the subculture of off-grid living, taking readers across the ideological spectrum and across America Written by a leading authority on living off the grid, this is a fascinating and timely look at one of the fastest growing movements in America. In researching the stories that would become Off the Grid, Nick Rosen traveled from one end of the United States to the other, spending time with all kinds of individuals and families striving to live their lives the way they want to-free from dependence on municipal power and amenities, and free from the inherent dependence on the government and its far-reaching arms. While the people profiled may not have a lot in common in terms of their daily lives or their personal background, what they do share is an understanding of how unique their lives are, and how much effort and determination is required to maintain the lifestyle in the face of modern America's push toward connectivity and development.

Many people today are looking for a simpler, less hectic lifestyle. Are you one of those people? I know I am. Instead of running on the consumer nation treadmill like most people, I decided to take action and go in a different direction--which is where my off-the-grid project began. Knowing that other people are searching for the same thing, I decided to document my adventure for their benefit.In Going Off the Grid: The How-To Book of Simple Living and Happiness, I provide a step-by-step guide for how to find your private piece of land and build a self-sustaining home. I recently built my own off-the-grid home in northeast Washington State, so this advice comes from first-hand experience. When building any home, things are not as easy as they appear on those DYI television shows. But with a little knowledge about how this process works in the real world, I believe anyone can achieve their dream of living a more quiet and peaceful life. The hardest part is taking the first step, and this book is the right place to start for any person interested in an off-the-grid adventure.
