An off grid home is one that is not connected to the “grid” of power that connects homes to power providers. The home may provide its own power through solar panels or windmills, or simply do without items in their home that require power. Some homes even go completely off grid and provide their own water through wells or other means, and sewage through composting toilets or using a septic tank system. If you’d like to learn more, I highly recommend the article cited below as a great guide for off grid homes.
Interestingly, the United States Marine Corps base in Kaneohe, Hawaii is planning to get off the grid. They plan to be off the state’s electric grid by 2015. They had a $26,000,000 electric bill in 2008, so this will obviously be a blow to the consumption of fossil fuel resources that they once used. They plan to do this by building a power plant that will run on biofuels.
