Living outside of electric grid means that you need to make your own electricity, otherwise this will be just a crib. There are some methods to get your electricity. You can put the Diesel Generation, but this might be quite expensive for the owner. But if you have bright head and some proper hands – you may have a free energy! In this video we have a greatest example of human mechanics thought. A guy, who is living somewhere out of civilization found the way to power up his home.
