In recent years, it has become popular to live off the grid. While not all of us want to live in the mountains with no access to general stores and only a few trusted dogs for company, there are smaller steps you can take to live more off the grid than you already do now. These choices can include installing Bellflower solar panels, growing your own food, and driving an electric car. Each of these decisions has become more popular over the last few years in part because they can help save consumers money, and because making these and similar choices is often more in keeping with their own values.
1. When you make the switch to Bellflower solar energy, you are making a conscious choice to live off the grid in terms of energy consumption. Most homeowners are unhappy with their current energy sources, but many feel stuck and with no way to make a change. Luckily, Bellflower solar panels are now becoming more common than ever. Prices have dropped and homeowners are taking advantage of tax credits to help pay for the upfront cost of installing VerengoSolar. The final payoff is a home that can be run completely from the power of the sun and monthly electricity bills becoming a thing of the past.
2. Just like installing Bellflower solar panels, the allure of growing your own food is due in large part to high food costs and the debate over whether pesticides are safe to ingest. Many people now know that organic food is safer and healthier, but unfortunately, it’s also expensive. This can be big deterrent for some. However, a rise in DIY culture has caused consumers to try their hand at organic gardening allowing families to eat organic foods without some of the associated costs.
3. Electric cars were once thought to be a worthless industry that no one would buy into. Today, you have almost every major car company offering electric cars or hybrids to a growing consumer base.
Fed up with the high costs of gas, car owners are turning to other transportation choices such as bicycles, public transportation, and even walking. But there will always be a demand for personal cars, and electric cars bridge the gap between choosing to walk or driving a gas-guzzling SUV. Consumers looking to live even more off-grid can now choose to power their electric cars with the same solar technology they’ve chosen for their houses. It’s an off the grid chain reaction, that is good for the earth and good for consumer wallets.
