This post, I'm sure many of you may feel, is a bit premature...but I'm curious where I should start looking. One of the first things my family would like to implement when we move to our new property is getting off the grid. The properties we've perused vary, some offer utilities some are still unimproved. All in all we want to provide as much of our own power as possible. So I'm just starting the digging into what the options are. We'd like to move in about 6 months or so, so we do still have some time. But I'm not sure what's the best option in our area. We live in western Texas so sun is always in ample supply, the wind blows like crazy as well. I just don't know where to even start looking so I'd just like your opinions. At first we're going to continue living in our recently purchased manufactured home, but we intend on building a site built home within the next 2 years. We have a large family and despite our best intentions I'm certain we will still need quite a bit of power. So, what do you guys think?
