Here is a question...for those looking to or already living off the electric grid (or semi-off grid) how did you do it? From what I have read, solar can be quite the investment. Is there any viable way to DIY? Or any other power sources? I know Jacob has mentioned solar panels before, I wondered if you planned to buy them or make them or what? I would love to stop paying money to the utility and start making my own power if it is feasible.
