8 common questions about going off-grid

Nature is in charge, not the other way round“.  Doone Wyborn, off-gridder.

Found this fantastic article in Business Insider about Doone Wyborn, a scientist in New South Wales living off-grid and the common myths questions he gets asked.

I’d add to that list:

9.  Are you a hippy?

10. How much?

I particularly like number 5 where he’s talking about what the uptake will be by consumers once storage costs fall – “This is all inevitable and the utilities business model will soon be dead, as will any utility that does not embrace solar.”
