5 DIY Off-Grid Projects For This Summer
We are deep into summer so if you are looking to use this time of beautiful weather to get some off-grid projects done now is the time. Becoming less reliant on the grid is beneficial to you and your bank account.
The most obvious project to get you off the grid is alternative energy projects. The article in the link below has a few of these to do. My favorite and the one I need to get done ASAP is the solar hot water project.
I know here at my house we spend a lot of money heating our water, my wife and I love our hot showers and if we wanted to get even more frugal we could get rid of our dishwasher and use this solar water heater to give us hot water to wash the dishes by hand. This would save us a tremendous amount of money each month.
Use summer to your advantage, the nice weather will give you ample time to make these projects. In the list of project is a solar can heater. I actually made one of these a few years ago and it’s still going strong. This will provide heat even in the winter. Again, this project should save you money on your heating bills too.
