Throughout the last few decades, there has been a trend of living off of the land that comes and goes. During the 1960s the hippie movement was very big on dropping out of society and going off grid in communes. The trend is coming back again in a big way but not so much for commune living but as a way to be self sustainable.

With the pandemic showing how fragile supply chains are, a lot of people realize that they should try to be less dependent on the grid. The failure of the grid in Texas during the frigid temperatures was a big wake up call to many that it is much better to produce your own energy as well. 

There is a huge advantage to going off grid these days as it has never been easier to learn the ins and outs as well as having many of the same comforts we are used to. In this article, we will go over the reasons that off grid living has gotten popular as well as what you need to know.
