My favorite article so far is entitled What it's Like Living Off Grid. This brief story of how one family handled some of life's electricity-driven tasks without electricity, is an interesting and light-hearted starter for those of us thinking about taking the plunge. Reading books like Living Like Ed got my engine running on this topic earlier, and Ed has clearly gotten the ball rolling full speed ahead. His approach is well-capitalized and extremely research-intensive, something that is probably easier said than done.
