Overview

Living Off the Grid: A Simple Guide to Creating and Maintaining a Self-Reliant Supply of Energy, Water, Shelter, and More by David Black

In daily life, we can take control of the resources and services we depend on. Electricity and energy don’t have to come off the public utility grid—alternatives abound in solar, wind, and water generated power. Design decisions can drastically affect power consumption, and bio-diesel and alternative fuels can help break the oil habit. Dave Black describes alternatives for eco-pimping your home and lifestyle for independence, economy, and a more integrated way of life. Equally valuable for the urban dweller vaguely concerned about the size of his or her carbon footprint and the rural self-sufficiency enthusiast, Living Off the Grid can help anyone take control of his or her life and way of living.

I purchased this book to get some tips on how to live off the grid. It reads more like a high school science book. I am very disappointed. The information is good but it does not provide me with the information I need to be able to lower my carbon footprint. It does provide a lot of information about how things work. I found a single paragraph of useful information.

It has some good information. Very basic. Black and white photos makes it seem like a 1950's book.
