The term off the grid can refer to living in a self sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities. Off the grid homes are autonomous, they do not rely on municipal water supply systems, sewer, natural gas, electrical power grid, or similar utility services. A true off grid home is able to operate completely independent of all traditional public utility services. On site water sources can include a well, stream, or lake. Depending on the water source, this may include pumps and/or filtration. Rainwater can also be harvested. Electrical power can be generated on site with renewable energy sources such as solar power, wind, micro hydro, geothermal with a generator or Micro combined heat and power with adequate fuel reserves.
