I’m an off-grid homesteader and There are always things I want to learn or things I want to get better at but there never seems to be enough time to get around to those things. Well now most of us are stuck in a situation where we have more time than we’ve had in a long time.

The things to think about when you’re going off-grid
Solar panels convert sunlight into DC(Direct Current) electricity. This electricity is then stored in a battery or bank of batteries. Because most electronic devices and appliances run on AC(Alternating Current) electricity they can’t be powered by the battery bank directly. The DC electricity must be converted into AC electricity.
Being active in the offgrid/homestead community is very helpful, especially to those just starting this journey. Here’s how to get going.
Living off-grid has different meanings for different people based on how they see the world. The reasons for living off-grid will have more to do with your own world view than how someone else defines living off-grid. Knowing yourself and how you place values on life will help you to decide if living off-grid is a worthy endeavor for you.
