Life off the grid
There's another helpful article by Rex A. Ewing in Log Homes Illustrated about living without access to power lines. It covers Arco photovoltaic (solar-electric) modules for charging batteries, propane-powered appliances and generators, and keeping your inverter in Search mode rather than On so you don't need zone pumps or fan motors. Well, I'm not sure what all that means either, but it sounds useful for those who aren't on the grid or want to save on electricity.
