Wouldn’t it be great if our power companies would get into the business of helping to set us up off-grid? That would require a change of revenue stream for them, but the benefits for the planet are multi-fold, and it would give them a way to stay in the game.

“We are still being fed the lie that we can somehow keep our lifestyles just like they are — just tweak them a little bit with some economical use of energy here and some taxes there — and somehow it can just go on as before,” Rosen said.

“I see people who live off-grid as the foot soldiers of the environmental revolution, the early adopters of what we will all have to do in the very near future.”
