Vermont Off-The-Grid Properties

Off the grid properties in Vermont can be classified into two catagories, those that have no access to the power grid and those that have access to the power grid but choose to produce their own energy. Many homeowners have bought a desirable parcel of land and after reviewing building site locations, have chosen to built in a spot that would be very expensive to bring in power. With all the technology today, providing one's own power can be quite cost effective. I have seen many residences that are connected to the power grid but the owners have installed alternative power sources to free themselves from the cost and dependence of the power grid. Either way, being energy independent is a very gratifying position that ultimately can be of benefit to us all.
