Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In daily life, we can take control of the resources and services we depend on. Electricity and energy dont have to come off the public utility grid—alternatives abound in solar, wind, and water generated power. Design decisions can drastically affect power consumption, and bio-diesel and alternative fuels can help break the oil habit. Dave Black describes alternatives for eco-pimping your home and lifestyle for independence, economy, and a more integrated way of life. Equally valuable for the urban dweller vaguely concerned about the size of his or her carbon footprint and the rural self-sufficiency enthusiast, Living Off the Grid can help anyone take control of his or her life and way of living.

Book News Annotation:

An international consultant in emergency planning and disaster response, Black does not say it is easy or cheap, or that it is particularly a good idea for most people, but he does explain general principles of living without being connected to the major utilities: electricity, water, and waste disposal. For details of construction, he identifies specific and detailed sources. He highly emphasizes the need to reduce consumption. Other topics include piggybacking off the grid, communicating, and making a living. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:
