It’s one thing to hear about off-grid living. It’s quite another to see it in action.
Nashville, Tenn.-based Power4Patriots today announced the release of its new DVD that shows in great detail how a young couple in Colorado is living completely off the U.S. electrical grid by powering their modern home with solar and wind energy. Off-Grid Living is a 75-minute, behind-the-scenes DVD designed for people who are considering becoming self-sufficient by generating some or all of their own energy through solar and wind power.
This complete guided tour of a home with all the modern conveniences and appliances in which a couple has been living completely off grid for the past five years walks the viewer through all of the technology used to power the system.
The tour includes close-up looks and explanations of the home’s solar panel array, batteries, charge controller and inverter setup, and includes tips regarding passive solar heating and wind turbine installation.
This walk-through of a 100 percent off-grid home shows viewers how to use the sun and wind to heat and cool their homes, how to wire solar panels and wind turbines for maximum efficiency, and how to connect the battery bank, inverter and charge controller.
Narrated by the couple who live in the house, the Off-Grid Living DVD also explains the philosophy behind why it is so freeing to get off the vulnerable electrical grid and become self-reliant and independent of ever-rising energy bills. They answer the top five questions that people considering off-grid living have, and share their tips regarding what not to do. They also provide additional tips and tricks to help save money and maximize the system’s power.
The DVD is priced at $19.95 (including shipping and handling) and comes with online access of the complete video transcript. It’s available at http://www.offgrid4patriots.com/video/index.php.
