Living Off Grid – Documentary

Documentary about living on the grid

 

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] just stumbled upon this 35 minute long mini-documentary about this guy living off the grid. He’s a creative guy and is into some very cool off grid systems including a methane gas digester that is powered by his septic tank! He hopes to run a propane fridge off it someday. That would be a really positive use of a nasty smell. Sometimes it’s really refreshing to hear peoples views on life, they vary so much. This guy seems like a pretty smart cookie, philosophy / engineering major? Is that even possible. I’d like to know more about this guy.¬†What do you think?

 

Imagine telling your neighbors that your poop keeps your beer cold.

 

Methane gas digester

He’s got solar photo voltaic panels, underground cold storage, root cellars, solar water heating, edible plants fed by grey water and more. Enjoy.

  1. Thanks Craig! I’ve been wondering how the cabin was doing. We just had our 2nd child this week so not much time for the cabin lately. I hope to get up there soon but probably won’t. Hope everything is well with you and yours.

    Was up at the cabin last weekend. Went down to check your’s and found a pad lock on the table on the porch. Put it up on the log beam of the porch roof by a rafter toward the hill. Everything looked good. Hope to run across you guys some weekend. craig
