Could You Live Off the Grid? [Infographic]

0

We always dream of a fantasy, a fantasy in which, we would be completely self-sufficient providing ourselves with our own fuel, our own food and our own energy. The fantasy sound too good to be true, and it would certainly decrease the monthly bills, but what about the comfort of central heating and other mod cons? So we ask the question, can you have both?

The answer to that question is yes, you can have both. But you will probably need to spend some money, because nothing is free!

Our infographic “Could you live off the grid” shows, how you can achieve this, and produce your own energy.

Wind Turbines: You need a lot of space to install a 6kW wind turbine, but it would easily cover your energy needs.
Solar Panels: A 4kW solar panel system could provide 3,400kWh. That is enough energy for an average family home, including:

  • 4,857 hours using the washing machine.
  • 97,143 hours of running the fridge.
  • 1,880 hours of boiling the kettle.
  • 1,417 hours of using the oven.

Energy Storing:

a. Deep Cycle Batteries: They allow you to store your energy for when you need it. You could buy one or re-purpose a battery from industrial vehicles.
b. One for the future: The Powerwall is designed to store electricity for domestic use, load shifting and backup power.

More details can be found in the infographic. We hope you like it, and it helps you live off the grid.

Modern Changes To The Classic British Pubs

Traditional British Pub

Not long ago I spoke with an American friend of mine who had just visited his first authentic British Pub in downtown London. As he sat in his comfortable chair enjoying his fish and chips and a pint of beer he was convinced that he was experiencing a centuries long tradition in its purest form. Needless to say he was surprised to learn that the original British Pubs were quite different.
