Life Goes On When The Power Doesn’t | Living Off Grid.

Life Goes On When The Power Doesn’t | Living Off Grid.

Property without power, living off grid in Maine.

And not worried about whether utility lines cause an interruption in electrical service. To some, living without power seems so hard to get the mind wrapped around.

What no juice, no plug in and turn it on? But living off grid does not mean you don’t have power.

Creature comforts still happen whether there are utility poles dotting the driveway or not.

Or buried along it to serve the residence with an electrical power connection.

For unlimited juice that makes the service meter whirl faster.

The more you tap into and use monthly.

From relocating, moving real estate buyers we get asked alot about the local electrical power providers in Northern Maine.

Along with other FAQ garden variety queries that come over the wire, through thin air or in the mail, office visits.

But for folks that don’t want power they purchase, many figure it will limit the number of neighbors too.

Because if no power is along a road or will be in the forseeable future, they are assured of peace, quiet, no having anything spoil the seclusion. One of the main reasons the real estate buyer from a crowded urban area bails out.

 Pulls the rip cord to land in our low cost property listing area of Maine. One mans drawback is another ones pleasure.

Living off grid without utility power leads to other significant changes in a person’s life. Less dependency on anything is like that.

It frees you up to put other essential elements into place. And in the right proportion. In moderation, for balance and an easy does it approach to simple living.potato purple maine photo

Building with southern exposure glass for solar gain in lighting, free heating is a smart way to use less power or no juice too.

So is having coils in a wood stove to heat your domestic water for showers, cooking, cleaning. When heating with wood from your own land and all the exercise received from prosessing the natural fuel.

So when someone says they want to buy Maine land, don’t need power or want it. I understand completely. And remind those who can not fathom such a thought, to remember history.

Abe Lincoln and George Washington were not watching 60 inch flat TV screens.

Running out to the ice box three door for ice cream snacks during commercial breaks or between HBO movie reels. Or their kids were not handling electric curling irons, power clothes dryers to survive their day to day either. moose maine photo

Land in Maine with or without power, take your pick on the flavor that works best.

Order off the menu what you have to have, avoiding anything you don’t.

Living off grid, with alternative power provided on site.

With wind, solar, deep cycle marine batteries and efficient LED devices along with Mother Nature supplying the natural lighting.And you are on your own when the Sun moves to the other side of the blue and green marble after night fall.

Living without power, or the traditional utility kind because you are off grid in Maine is part of reasons for the move, relocation.
