“These are just a few of the topline industry segments that can sell their products and services into our Off Grid Homestead, Farms and Ranches target audience,” said Robert Hoskins, Editor-in-Chief at Living-Off-Grid.com magazine.

“Smart Americans are flocking to the “Off Grid Living” and “Prepping Groups” in order to learn how to:

  1. Grow gardens and raise chickens, rabbits and goats for food.
  2. Install off grid solar systems that will be generating free solar electricity when the government turns off the electrical grid like the have done in Northern California during wildfires and Colorado using smart meters to control homeowners thermostats.”
  3. Install rainwater harvesting systems that capture and provide clean, purified drinking water.

Americans Fleeing Big Cities to Build Off Grid Homesteads
“Americans are scared of their government, which seeks only to enforce unbelievable laws like having to buy electric cars, forcing untested vaccines, drinking poisoned city water, outlawing front-yard, victory gardens, opening our borders to dangerous illegal aliens and schools that are teaching children its ok to get a sex change in kindergarten.”

“It is no wonder that Americans are fleeing big population centers. They can see the government purposely destroying supply chains by requiring dangerous vaccines for healthcare workers and Biden purposely declaring war on the oil & gas industry in order to cause inflation and drive prices through the roof so that Americans have no choice but to depend on the government for stimulus handouts, medical care, food and water.”

Off Grid Homesteads are Self Sufficient and Don’t Need Government Handouts

A good example to analyze is how people living off grid in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina fared after Hurricane Ian leveled homes, downed electrical grids and closed grocery stores.

People that lived in the cities were helpless and couldn’t provide for themselves, and were dependent on the local government for food, water and shelter.

“However, people who were living off the grid and preppers that store up emergency supplies weren’t phased one bit,” Hoskins added. “The day after Hurricane Ian Off Gridders lights were the only ones on, their refrigerators were still keeping food cold, ice makers were still making ice, rainwater harvesting systems were full of clean water and root cellars and pantries were stocked with enough food to last 12 months or more.”

Living Off Grid.com Magazine and Blog Enjoy Significant Growth

“That is why over the past 4 years, our Living-Off-Grid.com magazine and our Facebook Living Off Grid: Prepping to Live Off the Grid Discussion Groups have grown by sometimes as many as 3,000 new members per day. Smart, intelligent Americans are searching for a free sources of information on how to buy some rural land, build an Off Grid Homestead and teaching their families how to live off the land just like pioneers did in the 1800’s,” Hoskins summarized.

Which Solar Electric Kit Will Be Enough to Power My Entire Home?

For most off grid sheds, cabins and homes in the United States, one of the solar systems above should provide more than enough solar electricity to power your entire off grid homestead. These off grid systems are not designed to be used with a grid-tied home, but will accomodate a backup generator should it be needed during long periods of cloudy days when needed to charge up the battery bank.

Most of these systems price out to be less than a $3.00 per watt, which is way more affordable than most solar installation companies will charge you.  You will save thousands of dollars by doing all of the solar installation work yourself.

We do recommend hiring a journeyman electrician to oversee the wiring and grounding portion of the installation. And maybe a general handyman to help with pouring the cement footers for the ground mount and digging trenches and/or installing conduit pipe when running wiring underground from the array to the house or utility closet where the batter banks are located.

All of solar power kits, ranging from 1-kW to 10-kW system include everything you’ll need including solar panels, power inverter with built in MPPT charge controller, batteries, wiring and the racking system for a ground mount. They are complete turnkey solar systems that will provide sufficient electricity to power entire homes and/or businesses.

1st Question: How Much Solar Will Your Off Grid Homestead Need?

To figure out the how much solar your home will need, make a list of all the appliances you use in your current home: satellite dish, TV, computer, kitchen appliances, refrigerator, freezer, washer/dryer, lights, etc. You can either use a Kill a Watt Meter or an electric calculator to calculate out how much electricity everything uses. Another way to estimate electric needs is to gather your last 12 months of electric bills to see how many total kWh you are using now on a monthly basis and add up the last 12 months. Most homes use about 30-kWh per day or 900-kWh per month.

2nd Question: How Much Space Is Needed to Build an Ground Mount Solar Power Array?

A 1-kW of solar power panels typically requires 100 square feet or less of space. So 1-kW of panels will take up approximately 100 sq. ft. of space. 3-kW would take up to 300 sq. ft. 10-kW will need 1,000 sq. ft. Solar Panels and batteries should be as close as possible to where the electricity will be used to prevent line loss.

3rd Question: How Much Solar Energy Will My Solar System Generate?

The amount energy that can be generated by solar panels is dependent on how many sun hours your homestead receives each day. PVWatts is a good resource for determining how many watts your system will generate. Or you can look at a solar sun hour map below. In the southwest United States, most places in Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas will receive 5 sun hours during winter months and up to 8 hours of sun during the summer months.

Sun Hour Map of the United States

Sun Hour Map of the United States

 Actual power generated will vary based on location, equipment and installation factors. Refer to your electric utility bill to find the actual kWh used per month and then find the solar system that produces a similar amount of kWhs.

What is included in my Solar Power Installation Kit?

Our kits provide all the solar components you need from start to finish:

  • Solar Panels – PV modules with 25-year warranties, high effiicency and a -0/+5% power tolerance.
  • Off Grid Hybrid Inverters – includes a 97% efficient MPPT battery charge controller
  • Wiring and Waterproof  MC4 Connectors – everything you need to connect the solar panels, batteries to the home’s electric utility panel/breaker box
  • Racking and Attachments – Industrial strength ground racking mounts for installing solar panels on the ground to allow for easy cleaning and snow removal.
  • Solar Power Monitoring Displays – Free with every kit purchase! Digital read out displasy allow customers to view and analyze theiring solar energy production in real-time.
  • Not Included – Concrete, schedule 40 pipe, conduit pipe, fittings, breakers, junction boxes and a sub panel (if required). All these items can be purchased at any electrical supply shop, Home Depot or Lowes, and will typically cost ~$1,500.

Can I Install a 1-kW to 10-kW Ground Mount System Myself?

  • Most people can install a ground-mounted solar system on their own in a couple of days.
  • Our kits use industry leading solar panels, inverters, and racking systems specifically selected and combined to make do-it-yourself installation possible.
  • A homeowner who has wired up AC outlets before and is comfortable working with electricity should be able install our off grid solar systems.
  • If self-installation is not for you, we can help you find a local NABCEP-certified solar installer to help you with the process in your area.

What does a typical solar installation process include?

A typical solar ground-mounted system for a home can be installed within one or two weekends once a permit is obtained from your city or county.  After that, it’s just several easy steps until you’re system is  producing solar electricity from the sun’s endless and free energy.

  1. First, the racking and mounting system must be installed. This is the most laborious process of the solar installation process. You have to dig deep holes and pour concrete footers.
  2. Once the racking and mounting system is secured in the ground, the solar panels and inverters can be quickly installed. The inverter(s) are then tied to the home through a dedicated circuit breaker in the main service panel.
  3. When the installation is complete, your city or county inspector must sign off on it. You can accomplish this by scheduling an inspection meeting with them.
  4. Lastly, you must get the system inspected by the local permit authority.

What If I Need to Hire a Contractor to Do All of the Installation Work for Me?

Any licensed general, electrical or solar contractor can install our solar kits. If you select to hire a contractor to install your solar kit, you should expect to pay approximately $1.00 per watt for labor, wire, conduit, fittings, breakers and other miscellaneous electrical components to complete the solar system installation.

Sound good, but you’d like to talk to a real person to walk you through the solar purchase decision and solar installation process? Fill out this form so we can review your property location, examine possible shade from tree cover and calculate the number of solar hours that your property should receive and how many kWhs your solar system should produce.

 

Guide to Off Grid Living

Living-Off-Grid.com Magazine Unveils New State-by-State Buyer’s Guide Detailing Where the Best Places Are to Buy an Off Grid Property in the United States

In addition, Living-Off-Grid.com also offers a “Guide to Off Grid Living” that provides over 100 chapters of information on producing solar power, rainwater collection, growing gardens, raising livestock and everything a family needs to build a self sustaining homestead

Living-Off-Grid.com - Rustic Log Cabin in the Mountain Forest

Living-Off-Grid.com – Rustic Log Cabin in the Mountain Forest’s Fall Foliage

Austin, Texas (May 26, 2020)Living Off Grid Magazine announced today that it is now offering a State-by-State Directory of the Best Off Grid Properties for Sale in the United States as well as a Free Guide to Off Grid Living that details what is takes to start living off the grid for every state in United States.

The State-by-State Off Grid Land for Sale Directory and Guide to Off Grid Living were created to meet the pent up demand from city dwellers who are now actively seeking to buy rural ranch or farmland properties, then build an off the grid homestead due to these recent events:

  • California PG&E utility shutting off electricity to more than 2 million customers without warning and threatening to do so on a regular basis in the fture; and
  • News stories airing on the Coronavirus and COVID19 by ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News and other TV News networks that provoked panic buying in grocery stores that first stripped grocery stores of toilet paper and cleaning supplies and then quickly followed suit with stories on meat processing plants closing across America, which led to panic buying of beef, chicken and pork; and
  • And, last but not least, ruthless Democrat state governors issuing mandatory police state quarantines ordering all Americans to cease going to work and not allowing people to earn a paycheck causing the loss of more than 20.5 million jobs throughout the United States.

These events have caused many quick thinking Americans to start shopping for the “best places” in United States to buy an “off grid” or “rural” piece of property so they could head for the hills to start setting up self-sustaining homesteads that would survive even if utility companies started shutting off critical services such as electricity, natural gas and water services and grocery stores were suddenly sold out of meat, vegetables and other food supply items.

Offgrid homesteads can replace on-grid electiricty with solar / wind power, and on-grid water with rainwater collection and grocery store food with homegrown gardens and live stock so that there is no need to be dependent on civilization to make ends meet.

“Regardless of whose fault it was for causing the COVID 19 pandemic, Americans are now frantically searching for 10 to 100 acre parcels of off grid raw land where they can distance themselves faraway from police state governments that are now threating to go door-to-door enforcing mandatory COVID19 testing and forcing citizens to inject unproven vaccinations, which may kill more people than the actual Coronavirus itself,” said Robert Hoskins, Living-Off-Grid.com’s Editor. “We’ve seen our Facebook (FB) Off Grid Homes Discussion Group’s membership numbers increase significantly. In the past 3 months, we have seen growth rates of more than 60% rising from from 2,800 members in March 2020 to 4,624 members in May 2020. Our actual increases were 15% in March, 22% in April, and another 25% forecast by the end of May.”

“Our website’s Guide to Off Grid Living traffic also saw significant growth. For the entire year in 2019, we attracted around 2,690 readers that generated 5,230 page views.”

“Looking at the numbers for the first 5 months of 2020, our circulation has increased from 2,690 to 17,973 readers who have generated approximately 36,331 page views, up 6,930%. If this trend continues the magazine will have more than 41,000 readers generating 87,000 page views by then end of 2020.”

“As a result of the massive pent up the demand for ‘Off Grid’ information we’ve even been getting calls  from TV reality series program directors asking us to help them put together reality TV show treatments and story ideas for them to begin producing new off grid reality TV shows,” Hoskins added.

“After surveying more than 6,640 off-grid FB group members, we’ve found that our members would be most interested in helping TV producers and program directors putting together an Off Grid version of PC Magazine, but with editorial targeting off grid homesteaders, which would include Off Grid Product Roundups, Off Grid Buyer’s Guides and Off Grid Equipment Bakeoffs to help off-gridders make educated purchase decisions for big ticket items such as rainwater collection cisterns, aquaponic garden setups, high-end wood-burning stoves and solar power arrays that can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000.”

In addition, members stated that the off grid industry lacks an organized supply chain of value-added resellers and distributors or rural area buying cooperatives where off grid customers can see live demonstrations of working products and take education courses to help them make better purchase decisions.

Many feel that establishing off grid buying cooperatives would be a great way to generate economic development in very poor rural areas and counties where jobs are extremely difficult to find and where off grid communities are beginning to see rapid growth and expansion. Buying cooperatives are the perfect way to generate loans and grants requests for the USDA, which can be the driving force in rural economic development.

Specialized training classes are esssential for helping educate a local workforce  installers, dirt movers, septic system installers, home builders, rainwater collection and solar installation experts that newcomers can turn to for expert installation of off grid products and services that every rural homestead will need. This process will generate a workforce of installers that can start news businessses that will would create good paying jobs as well as provide lots of installation companies that compete for new land owners business. Competition for these new products and services helps drive prices down and makes it very affordable to build new off grid homesteads.
