Have you ever thought about moving away from the hustle of the city? Is it your dream to live out into the country, far enough away that your view isn’t obstructed by electrical lines? With battery backed-up power systems it is now possible to live where you want and power your home by using natural resources such as solar, geothermal, and wind.
Living off the grid isn’t a new idea. It’s been less than a hundred years since we started attaching power lines to our homes. Before power grids were installed in the US we lived self-sustaining lives from our local resources. Wells gave us water. Coal and wood kept us warm. These days with technology advances we can have all the modern-day amenities we are used to without being a part of the large carbon footprint power companies leave behind.
But where can you find a home in this century that isn’t on the power grid? Even the most secluded properties seem to have phone and power lines going out to them. Surprising enough over the last few decades more and more people have been building houses that have their own power sources. Recently, we happened to receive one such home, a new listing in North Hilo that is off the grid.
35-1183 Homestead Rd is set on 19.4 acres of land in Laupahoehoe. At an elevation of 1500 feet the view of the ocean and surrounding country side is breathtaking. Three bedroom, two full baths, and a fireplace to keep you cozy in the evening. This property is ready for an owner who wants to live away from bustle of the city and is conscious of the environment.
