So, Dh and I have been planning on building a house that is half a mile past the current power lines. Our estimate from our local electric company to get power to our site was $38,000
Sheesh, that takes a huge chunk out of the building budget!
Being off-grid is really what we always wanted to do but we didn't seem to have the info and we thought it was going to be more expensive
So we've been talking with some people who are knowledgeable and we think we'll be heading full steam ahead on being off grid
We're going to start with full solar, and possibly add wind down the line awhile. It really is a great location for wind, but based on suggestions we've gotten, we'll start with solar.
So anyway, the recommendation we got was to buy as many appliances that run on propane as possible. The reason I came here was to get appliance suggestions and/or ideas for alternatives.
Any other info/links/etc anyone would like to offer would be great too!
