O.k. so hubby and I are looking at purchasing a tract o land soon and will want to build near to the center of it for seclusion. I am thinking of goign off grid but am questioning how to utilize for some appliances? I can see gas stove, and some other appliances. Did wonder bout those gas water heaters and if they are electic free completely? Oh,, and how could I get my deep freezer and posisbly washer going off grid? Solar? Please share oh wise homesteaders.... Ideas???? Thanks!
