How can we live somewhat off the grid without having to dig a well? .
Solar Energy System for the house gets you off the power grid reliance and can actually get you paid for providing energy to the grid. Buy a power Banking storage system to use instead of a generator, allows to store solar energy for emergencies. Get Rid of the gas powered stove and switch to electric. Buy a DrinkableAir C60 dehumidifier/water filtration unit. It Makes 71 gallons of pure drinking water a day with a storage of 180 gallons of water. Get a tankless electric water heater, no more wasting water waiting for hot water to start, and no gas pilot light. Electric furnace with whole house humidity control will create humidity for the dehumidifier to make water. Get a 500 gallon reserve tank for potable water. High Efficiency Dishwasher, High Efficiency Clothes Washing machine to save on water consumption. Get a smaller HE Fridge with No freezer or ice maker Get a HE Deep Freezer Get a separate icemaker that creates ice from humidity in the air. All your water and ice will be filtered and contaminant free, and you can add a water tank that you put the stones in to add mineral and ph to the pure water. Buy all this on a single home improvement loan and use the money you make from selling the electric company your solar energy to help pay for the entire thing. You'd need either a septic tank or a city sewer connection that you can cut off incoming city water and pump your storage water to supply the house for showers and toilets and dishwasher. Could be a worthwhile investment once the loan is paid off, your money youd normally pay towards utilities would go towards filters, and maintenance. I'd like to see a side by side spread sheet of the cost analysis
Can you help me understand any flaws in my reasoning, or things I forgot to factor in.
