Move your house off the grid affordably by plugging into propane.
Propane is available in rural or remote locations making living off the grid easy. In places where natural gas is not available and there is limited access to utilities, propane is a reliable option. Cogeneration, or Combined Heat and Power (CHP) units are now available that produce heat in addition to electricity so you consolidate to a single source of energy.
Propane off-the-grid power systems are housed outside, usually adjacent to a carport or other non-living space. Propane generators can even serve as a primary energy source for modern off-the-grid homes
For those living a nomadic lifestyle or “van life,” a generator is a must have to power your appliances. Portable propane generators are a great tool and resource for RV owners and campers. They can also provide power for construction crews working on sites not yet connected to the power grid.
