Things You Should Do
1. Off-grid living requires you to develop home energy independence. In most cases, the best option is to retrofit your existing home with solar panels, which will absorb energy from the sun that you can use in your home.
2. Supplement your solar panels with a power station. When you have a stretch of cloudy weather or any kind of mechanical problem with your solar panels, a power station really comes in handy!
3. And in addition to the energy necessary for life, you also need to consider the supply of food and water and collect enough clothing for every season.
