What is Off Grid?

Do you ever find yourself asking “What is off grid?”  Well, Off grid means different things to different people.
According to Wikipedia, off-the-grid is a system and lifestyle designed to help people function without the support of remote infrastructures, such as an electrical grid.

The off-grid lifestyle is living autonomously without reliance on a utility.
When most people think of living off-the-grid, they picture a rural area which is typically the case. However, one can live off-the-grid or at least partially off-the-grid in an inner-city area.

Living off the grid to most is the ability to be autonomous and self-reliant. To some, it means living a more primitive life but to others, it means living a modern lifestyle. The lifestyle is a very personal choice and living off-the-grid or partially off-the-grid allows each person, couple, family or group to choose their lifestyle.

The off-grid lifestyle is appealing to a large portion of the younger generations in the U.S. As with any product when there is increased demand, there is increased supply. This is evident today with more and more products created to support the off-grid lifestyle.
