Renewable Energy for Homes Off Grid

Homes that are found in incredibly rural parts of the country will often have no electricity supply, meaning they have to survive without electricity or look at generating their own source. Often renewable energy sources such a solar, water or wind power hold the answer, with these homes being able to generate enough electricity for themselves.

If you are generating your own electricity then you could be receiving payments through feed-in tariffs. This is also the case for those homes that are off the grid, allowing you to receiving some of the tariff for generating your electricity, but you will be unable to get the tariff for exporting it.

What is Earthship ?

What is Earthship ? | Sustainable Energy | Scoop.it

An Earthship is a type of passive solar home made of natural and recycled materials. Designed and marketed by Earthship Biotecture of Taos, New Mexico, the homes are primarily constructed to work autonomously and are generally made of earth-filled tires, using thermal mass construction to naturally regulate indoor temperature. They also usually have their own special natural ventilation system. Earthships are generally Off-the-grid homes, minimizing their reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels.
