Default Off the grid

I would use a combo of solar panels and wind energy. I would still need a septic system and well. Garden for fresh food and can food for winter. It would need to be in a moderate climate somewhere steady between 20 degrees and 90 degrees.

A combination of solar and wind energy would be ideal unfortunately solar panels although more affordable now that ever before would be one of the most expensive up front costs for a homestead but wind is definitely something i'm going to look into!! .. I'm also planning on either a burn or composting toilet which is a little expensive initially but in the long run the smaller cost of maintaining would make it worthwhile. Insofar as weather...Chad you have me there, Alaska in winter averages 10 below..but it makes up for it in Spring and Summer with lots of sun (70's & 80's) and they grow the sweetest peas and carrots in the world that will spoil you forever to vegetables grown elsewhere...

I think that is a good back-up and good for showers and garden but i wonder about drinking?? There is still so much bad stuff in our atmosphere i would worry about drinking it...Have you done any research Chad, about using it as drinking water on an ongoing basis?

I would not drink rain water. I would have a well that was tested. I guess my off grid would be a little different with a well and septic system.

Not sure I could live off-grid unless there was a reliable alternative electric power. I really would like to live as luxuriously as possible.

If there were a natural disaster or large civil unrest, think I'd head for the top of a NY or Chgo high rise with gardens for security from the strife below and roof top food via barter.
