Start-Up Cost Of Living Off The Grid [INFO-GRAPHIC]
Why go Off Grid in the First Place?
Living off grid is a one of the most talked about topics on-line, off-line, urban and sub-urban! But why are people looking to go off grid in the first place? What’s the appeal?
Living off the grid simply means having a self-sustaining domicile that is independent of outside utilities. While “preppers” and survivalists may come to mind, for many, the goal of living off the grid is simply to live healthier and leave a smaller environmental footprint.
Living Off The Grid: It’s fast becoming one of the most sought after lifestyles on the planet.
People are looking for inexpensive ways to either…
- Cut their monthly cost of their energy bill money
- Add a solar system to their existing home
- Reduce monthly energy consumption
- Get off grid all together
- Downsize their existing home
It Begins (and ends) with Electricity
What if You Don’t Want to go Completely Off Grid?
Going off grid may not be an option for some people as some areas of the U.S. won’t allow you to disconnect from the grid.
But if you still want to “stick it” to the grid, then there are some great options.
For example, we’re all sick and tired of having to pay the monthly energy bill that increases almost every year and will continue to, and we certainly can’t lock in our monthly energy costs for a decade or two. Now ask yourself this…
When was the last time the utility company actually paid you any money?
The dirty centralized energy industry is a $6 trillion dollar/year industry. Today, we’re finally taking back control of the energy industry through the installation of home solar systems. We now have options that include net metering and even powering your home with the aid of a Tesla powerwall or even the Cybertruck! The Tesla Cybertruck has both 120V and 240V outlets and that means no more power outage when a storm hits. Some folks use a generator. We’ll be using our Cybertruck!
If you’re interested in finding out more about Tesla and their all electric vehicles then do use our link to head there and get 1500kms FREE supercharging should you decide to get a Tesla. It’s a WIN WIN!
What about Water and Septic?
So What’s The True Start Up Cost?
Somewhere around $70K.
Check out the info-graphic below to see how we came up with that amount.

What can You do About it?
Easy… tell the electrical company who’s gouging you every month by hiking up your electricity bill year after year your’re giving them the old heave-ho!
We no longer need the utility company and their centralized power grid. The bottom line is that a new home goes solar every three minutes, can generate its own power, and even generate money when it produces excess energy. You can even sell the excess energy your system produces back to the same utility company that has been charging you all these years. Imagine that! And there’s even a couple options from there. Have a power credit applied to your next bill or simply get paid for the excess energy you produce (depending on your local regulations).
Now that’s telling them 😉
