Is it hard to live off the grid?

    It is initially difficult to make the change to off-grid power. The difficulty is partly financial (the initial cash outlay needed to purchase solar, wind, etc. systems). It is also partly behavioral; our society has come to rely on electrical power from the grid and all the conveniences it brings. Living off the grid may require some changes in our behavior as it affects our energy usage. It will also require a certain amount of maintenance to the equipment that is not a concern for those living on the grid.

    However, it seems from the reports of those who do live off the grid, that it is not impossible, and once the transition is made, they are typically happy for having made the change. Some even sell excess energy back to the electrical companies, so it may be financially lucrative in the long run.
